Could not resist to tip my hat to Ben. Far away from my home, computer, photoshop ... this is dedicated to you Ben. Comme l'eau quii coulle.

I thank profusely to everybody who looked at my image and to the ones who liked it and took the time to comment on it. It was truly a shot in the dark literally and metaphorically.

Oh, and as a side note, I was looking for my pearls.

You were looking for your pearls! So was I and afraid they went down the drain. Literalism aside powerful image.

Dark and insistent, I can't look away. No closure. Will be mulling in the back of my brain for a long time.

One of the more surreal images in the challenge. Stirring and evocative. The blues and blacks, and strange digital overlay, punctuate the feeling.

Oh wow. This is SO cool. I don't find it remotely like Ben's work, but since he's constantly reinventing himself... Stunning image.

Some people have just taken it and pushed past the best asdnd most obtuse of bspurgeon- and you are one of them.

Reaching across the water, ingrained with texture, shadow and memories. Some dreams washed away, others remain. Fascinating vision.
