the bottom left image comes forward (due to the color) - perhaps leave it alone except to fade the straight line in it. The flowers on the right also come forward due to the color, but it is spectacular like flowers sitting on a window shelf. The top right image needs to be toned or faded to bring it into the background (methinks).
The top right was need the one that worried me most. I’ll try toning first.

You have crystal clear vision. You can find the tiniest things. Make us a collage and we will have so much fun looking for anything you might have missed. After 4 eye surgeries and many kinds of contacts and glasses my eyes are not half as keen yours.

Well, I haven't been able to do much satisfactory stuff with this weeks theme, but not for lack of trying. The problem seems to be inspiration and skill, both running in short supply this week.

Here's a couple of crazy things I made in my efforts.

The first is a shot of the window of an antique jewelry store. There was no way to do much with it as it was, so it turned into a twinkle in an eye... I stole the eye but the other stuff is from what I cobbled together

The second is every ring I could find in my immediate work area: A pile of spiral ring notebooks for my photography class notes, the ring around my Nest thermostat, my wedding ring (which cost us $5 from a street vendor in New Orleans in 1974), and a background from a graphic print on a book cover. Since I made this mess I put my own reflected self in it too. There's two of me because the mirror is beveled.

I think I've lost my mind today...

Determination isn't always a good thing though.

It's interesting to look at a project from a distance, the images are great, but the collection tells so much about the artist! S-

perhaps not always good, but always very powerful determination is. Determination and persistence SHOULD be held in higher regards than intelligence and good looks. Ultimately determination and persistence will take you much further (though my good looks have taken me far).

You're one of the most determined artists I've known. Your digital painting within a self designed project outstrip anything I've tried.
