    mrsawyer: Glad that you are getting better and thank you for your congrats. Hope the next Op goes well too.
forkcandles: Mmm.. I'll have to get to grip with layers. I delve occasionally but avoid as much as possible. I know it is essential.

    Wow! Let me be the 8th to congratulate you! I didn't get to comment earlier, as I was out with health issues!

    Great result. New camera you could have as a prize. For the background using jadeO tips on gimp take a picture of the background materiel and then layer in pp.

    Whew! I dont know where to start. Ive just got home from golf. It was on the golf course that I heard the news. My friend Peanut was also there on another hole and we waved madly to each other getting a 1 and 2 in the Main challenge. We are both new to this. (No, we don't compare notes!)
I also have to say "BOTHER" because I want to get a new camera and now the family will see no reason for it.
Thank you all for you comments and congrats.
Some commented on getting rid of - dropping - the pitcher. I'm glad my grandmother cant hear you - it is an heirloom. There were two of them but I accidentally dropped one

As I said I am a beginner and Elliott your comment about the background was right to the point. I had tried for hours to match the texture of the real painting. Can you tell me how I could have got it?!

I'm off to have stiff cup of decaf!

    Nice double! Congratulations. What a great thing to wake up to! It's clear to me you won on photographic merit and bang-on to the Challenge theme in both categories. A great effort!

    A n excellent interpretation of the Van Gogh`s Coffee-Pot.

Jul 21, 2013
    Well done! You did a great job of imitating Van Gogh's composition and colours.

Jul 19, 2013
    Not shocked to see a Van Gogh interpretation but am suprised there is no Mona Lisa. This, also as another entry, makes me feel like viewing a painting and not a photo. Having hard time deciding if winning interpretation should be one that is close as possible to original or a variation of original. But overall I like your entry.

Jul 19, 2013
    Very beautiful! A lot of work that paid off!

Jul 19, 2013
    Great picture. Similarity with the original is uncanny. Made a fascinating still life.

Jul 19, 2013
    great. little texture in the background to mimic the original would put this higher. good entry for the challenge. in my favorites.

Jul 19, 2013
    good result on the theme. the left hand orange may have been nearer and given a strong edge

Jul 19, 2013
    Well done! I think I prefer your to his. To be honest I would 'accidentally' drop your tall jug if I had the chance LOL but it does fill the function. I deduce from this image that that you are right handed.

    Amazing rendition and so close to Van Gough's. Everything works; it actually looks like a painting. Well done! My #1.

    O.k. I hate the pitcher but everything else is very very well done. I think I may even prefer your objects. Great cover of the original.
