Are we therefore meant to be taking a shot of a famous / well known piece of art Irv ?  :-\ I do not have a long enough lens to catch a shot of the Eiffel tower from here  :'( :2funny:

Well you best get saving then Mark :2funny: :2funny:!
The idea  I was trying to convey - although not very well obviously - is for you to shoot something that is a copy of a piece of art (ie a woman sitting and giving the Mona Lisa smile , someone standing on a hill as the Angel of the north statue, maybe the Blackpool tower with a beret in the foreground or even Van Gogh's sunflowers) but with your interpretation of it. I hope this helps rather than confuses the issue more!

I've got the picture now, thank you; with a few ideas springing to mind already. Splendid topic choice  :tup: My fault for being so dense in the head  :doh: :-[

Here we go then:



You can start guessing now.

Irv, are we allowed to give any clues if the guesses are miles out?

I've got a bit enthused by this one, so I am planning to spend another hour or so trying to replicate some other works and see which one I like best by the end of the week.  :tup:

Not uploading Mick it is just that the Bbcode was missing from the last set of pictures that I put in the gallery but it seems that it is there now.

That's a tricky one Andy - there are loads of images of ballet shoes . .  is this from a photograph or a painting?

It is an interpretation (not a replica) hopefully capturing the spirit of the artist's work in his hay day, and I feel sure he would have enjoyed the ease in digital camera processing.

This one is a tribute to my Ma who hung up her ballet shoes many moons ago

I took so many photos this last week during my UK trip, but this may have to be my comp entry.
His hands are in the wrong place but otherwise it did remind me of a much older sculpture.

I'm guessing yours might the thinker Carol.

Andy, you gave yours away on flickr  :o

Got another one I did this afternoon:



 . . from a photographer I found inspirational and everyone else found a PITA. Thanks to Mrs H for being a brilliant sport and posing for me. :tup:

Go on someone, have a guess at the others I've done  :knuppel2:

From the 1880s:



From the 1920s:



the last two both paintings.

Got one more idea to try, but think I'll go with the 1920s image as my entry.

I thought mine was a dead give away Howard,  going on how quickly my daughter mentioned the title and artist of the original painting. That said, I have seen another ballet shoes painting by the same artist in a private collection that is far away much better than the popular printed version I lamely interpreted.

I would need a clue to guess your shots as I am not familiar with the images portrayed.  :tup:

The boots one looks to tidy for Van Gogh and I hazard a guess the other is about pillow sacks conversing although the pallet ought to give me a clue  :-\
