I took a cardboard box and cut into it. I used the New York Skyline ans the broklyn bridge as my guide. I took the flaps of the box and used those as my image. I used a flashlight behind the box cutouts to light up the New York Sky! Post processing I added some contrast and I brightned it a bit. I took this in black and white. The background is simply a wall with spackle on it.

Just a bit too dark for me. Creative answer to the challenge.

What a silly, dark picture. And yet it brings a new world to life. I give you the Posthumous Red.

This is just too dark. So dark, that I really just sort of passed right over it during initial scanning.

The idea is nice... but why is it so dark?

wonderful- it was the idea I had also, but didn't have time to shoot--I would not have done this well though. Love the 'clouds' 9

Interesting idea. I wish this was a lot lighter.

Creative idea. I presume the beads are the Brooklyn Bridge? A bit dark to really make out the details, though.

Very cool setup, but could use a good deal more contrast--there's no part of this b/w image that is actually white--as a rule, try to adjust to make sure that happens.
