This image is quite a bit different in color from the previous ones. It also includes an overall texture which I am continuing to explore further.

All C&C's welcome

This one's definitely a keeper. But then I am very fond of black/white/grey combinations. There is definitely an art deco feel in this one for me.

And there is so much visual dimension here that it's almost impossible to believe this is actually a flat surface.

Jim, I happened upon on interesting thing...when I quickly pull the scroll up and down, the "grill-type" image at the left appears to be venetian blinds with somone standing behind them. Anyway, cool job!

Never noticed till now, but there's definitely a strobe effect, isn't there?

Karen, Dan and Barbara,

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments.

You're right Dan, that's a fun discovery. The dark background there is not a solid color. It has a lot of variation in it which probably accounts for the illusion of a figure. If and when I exhibit this I will have to tell people to "stand here and jump up and down real fast".... ;-)
