That is the original background. She was posing against a car. I did
mess up her skin tone and before I send her the shot, the flesh tone
will be changed. It is off color because I forgot to convert it from LAB
to sRGB before saving.

Looking at the image more closely I see what you mean. Tomorrow I would
like to send a better version of the same image as a substitute?
I agree to waive my prize money.

Thanks for the kind words. I had to look up Piet Mondrian. Learned
something new.

I love that one too, so many contrasts, skaters in a circle - rectangular shadows, colours on bright ice, small child - big child.
I am describing it too much, you either get it or not.

Others I like is Savageduck's seal, simple and powerful, Martha's whale skeleton, Coopers crane and squirell in a bottle, Pete Attkins' sheds (the perspective is too harsh, I would have liked it more more if it was taken 2 steps back), Bowser's seagull, Peter Newman's stuff that looks like straws.
Tim Conway's sprinkler could have been better framed, the white rectangle in the fence is distracting.

I have played with the whale skeleton see what you think of it
