I like very much. This teaches me to see what is there in front of me. Thanks. The contrasting, complementing textures are very pleasing. I see both Chuck's map and an orange being peeled. I played visually with making this a landscape but agree that portrait works better. The lines in the bricks give it a sense of motion which would be lost in landscape. Well done. Matt
Thank you so much! I'm still learning and everyone's feedback helps! S-

Just aside, it might make an interesting challenge to try to find things that look like other things. Minnie's ice critter foot, for example. Everyone sees something different in it (but it's squid I'm tellin' ya). Studies have shown (snerk) that humans are very attuned to seeing faces in things: Matt's tree for example. I'm not suggesting we should all go out specifically looking for Jesus in the toast but if it's there in front of you...? :|

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Way to go, Steve!
A superb exercise in texture and control of the tonal palette’s spectrum, and, as such, makes me want to touch it!

Oh, be careful there. I hear you can go blind doing things like that. :rofl:
