Good one Steve!

Very romantic Grant, good job!

Wow Tim, that is a plate full! Good Idea!

I think this must have been the first cruise ship to reach Costa Rica on a three hour tour. The crew was spotted drinking cerveza on the beach.

Nice Rich! I am a Gilligan's Island fan too. Saw a documentary and learned that some viewers actually wrote to the Department of Defense and wanted to know why we can put people on the moon but can't find these castaways!...for real

OK so we go from GI to The Twilight Zone...

I most enjoy the idea of floating round.

Tim, that is not only funny but believable too. With the shadows that you created on the sphere, it looks so real. It absolutely looks like it is floating. You even to a nice shadow which is so important to make it look realistic. Great job.

Thanks Lorell!
Done in Gimp.

First cloned out the seagull completely.

Then, actually the sphere part was even easier than you might suspect.
1) Screenshot of page pasted onto new palette.
2) Selected a square cutout of the spot I wanted.
3) Cropped image to selection
3) Chose Filters/Distort/Map/Map to sphere.
4) Adjusted the X,Y points to get the light (provided) shining in the correct direction.

Lastly, the only shadow that I created was the drop shadow on top of the piling, which is crucial to its illusion of reality. I used the burn tool with a 45% opacity and feather brush for that.
