Continuous Iron Photo Contest Finalist

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.

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!
