Josh, another well done Escheresque image ... thanks for posting it.

You are obviously an Escher fan as am I.  I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting him in an old age home for artists in Leiden in the early 1970s and purchased 3 prints from him.  Sadly we sold them to help finance an addition to our house in the early 1990s.

Maybe we need an "Escher" thread on LuLa, like "Rocks" and "Clouds."
I, too, am enjoying these a lot. Keep 'em coming!

Now can you find the original for fish turning into birds?

This is the kind of thing HDR is really good for. You can use HDR techniques to pretty much obliterate the light, and capture some of that pencil-drawing feeling. I am pretty much waiting for the HDR guys to stop with the oversaturated crap and move on to something interesting, like, say, this.

Thank you Gents.

I am definitely an Escher fan.  ;D

P.S No HDR in any of my work - EVER. ;D

I certainly wasn't accusing you of using HDR, though I don't see it as a crime. I was just pointing out that it can be used to get am Escher-esque look.

Thats ok. I know what you meant. I just have a strict non HDR policy for my own work; but do occasionally see examples from others that I like. ;D
