Thanks for all the comments - this was a very fun and interesting challenge - I learned a lot, mostly about photoshopping (which has always been a weakness for me), but also about the difficulties in photographing shiny metal objects, which is something I've never done before either! Thanks again :)
I’ve been working in NYC this past week, and the laptop I was using didn’t come close to revealing the creative thought behind this image. I could not pickup the ‘drawing’ portion of the pix, until I rocked the LCD back. Then it was this great discovery that made me smile. I love everything about this one. For me personally, I think focus may be soft, but I accept it as the transition from drawing to reality.
This is definitely among my favorites.
