HACKED Photo Contest Finalist
Camera: Canon PowerShot G2

Captured: Jan 02, 2005 17:38:19

Aperture: 2

Shutter speed: 160

Focal length: 7

Flash: On

Same settings used for both images. I had been reading and thinking a lot about the subject lately, and came to the conclusion that a computer invasion was not much different than a home invasion. So I tried to compile an image that visualized the idea.

Thoughts and or comments welcome.

Your right, Brian! Upsetting and annoying.

Your image is very well put together and creative!

LOL! What a creation! The hacker is just much more cowardly than the home invader!

Brian, This is so neat. It must have taken you a long time to do this. I couldn't even begin to think how it was put together.

Thank you for your ego boosting comments folks. :) Makes me smile when I hear nice things like that.
Kay, this one actually did take me a considerable amount of time, and I'm not sure why. I was in there with a 500% magnification at 300 DPI with an eraser for a long time on many of the layers though. I think I just answered my own question. Grin.
Thanks again

Thanks for all the supportive comments. :) The attention I think, is what drives me to continue. :)
I had made several samples of this with various backgrounds, but this is the one I finally settled on as my favorite. I'm glad you like it too.
