Thanks Susana, Paula - it's meant to be fun(and hopefully attention grabbing!). This image is part of a new series I'm putting together promoting my photography.

This is just amazing! The guy in the boat makes me think of one of the Saturday Afternoon Post covers from years ago. I think you were channeling Norman Rockwell.

Thanks everyone. It's great to hear back on an image completely constructed from the ground up using imagination. I'm almost convinced it's ready to make my portfolio.

Marsha, that's a startled version of myself in the boat! JQ

I vote for you James!

Awesome, and yes it does look like something in the magazines I have seen before, but not as good as yours!

James...I just "ran into" this image in Photoshop User Magazine...in the Design Showcase section (in case you have been 'out of town'). I know they are not the first to honor you...but I am honored to see your work being published "locally!"
Congratulations!
