A composite of 6 different images.


I tried to put ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Judi's lessons to good use and come up with a clean edit. (Thank you for the lessons, Judi!!!).

The front starfish and the blurry background are one image and I added everything else including the second starfish, the red fish, the eyeballs, the jelly fish and the girl's face.

I did not want to enter this challenge as I'm a fish out of water when it comes to this stuff. And, I wish I had a topic closer to my heart than this silly (but fun!) image from a day out with kids at the aquarium. Oh well...maybe next time.

Thank you to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' LevT for the encouragement. I appreciate you!

It took me a bit before I noticed the reflection of the eyes. Interesting image.

Cute idea, but the human face is a bit too subtle. I do hope people take a long enough look to give you good scores. I really like the colors in this, and the starfish do look like they're dancing & jumping.

Ha! Not sure I understand the inclusion of the face on the right, but am loving the dancing stars :-)
