I started with a photo of just the "center wheel" of the iron railing; I extended the canvas and duplicated half of that wheel onto each side.

Thank you very much... was unsure at the time whether to go DD or EOD with this one!

EoD all the way -- they don't want anything in DD that doesn't scream darkroom work and this certainly does not LOL The colors are terrific -- that's what caught my eye first. Congratulations on the finalist and good luck in the next round, Chris.

Thanks so much folks!
Nikki, I think you're absolutely right... after the work I spent cloning the railing I felt like I'd put a lot of darkroom time into it---but yes, it doesn't look at all like a darkroom creation, in the end.

Excellent work on this Chris and if you had never told I would of thought the railing was captured as is - in other words it's a fantastic piece!!!! Big congrats on this outstanding EOD finalist!!

Thanks, folks!
Renee; it was a pretty "clean" capture originally (ie, a simple wall behind the iron) so I thought it was a natural candidate to try and clone in more railing on the left and right... I wouldn't have tried it at all if the yellow wall had been decorated or otherwise more complex!
