    @ FlashL!ght ....wow...

    Thats nice nepzap, the upper half reminds me of Star Trek: Enterprise opening...It looks like at the bottom half you lost your train of though though...It kind of flows together, but it looks like you got distracted or rushed on it.

    It's nice overall just looks like you lost your original thought. Btw, everything except that purplish/blue thing leading off to the right, leads the eye very well down your page, going to every element.

    It's better than what I could do. GJ...wow...I got a bit long winded...

I came here for inspiration for a banner Im doing for vzw internally and look what I see flash I want that las image too for a desktop. all of the tech images I see are crazy I have a lot of work especially on my vectors.

    Flashl!ght I have to ask how is it that you got the cables so smooth in the curve and variation of colors? Also for the vectoring what program did you use to do that?

Then I duplicated, moved the dupe below the original, changed the dupe fill to be darker and offset some of the points to reveal them emerging behind the original to create the perspective feel. Really simple, but a convinving enough effect -- same effect used in Vita, my march madness geoconstruct(that was the first time I tried it) and various other images. Then I added some brush strokes over top with various blend modes to make it look a bit less solid and more natural/textured.

    Oh, even though this is a themed battle there's quiet a variety in the images. Good work to both

    OK... I sorta lost my way on this one, so I am posting it today (i.e. cutting myself off before MM starts).

    I will say that tech style is not my strong suit, but I wanted to challenge myself. Especially after looking at some of flashlight's images.

    So with that in mind, give me some feedback.

    Hey group I like the image. I like how you created a since of depth in the picture. Now as far as the layout it somewhat has my eye just jumping from here to there, I would have like have seen some different colors besides green on green so to speak. On the plant stem the edges are a bit choppy but for this to be your weakness overall a good stab at it. Yeah flashl!ght's work is whew I tend to find myself in awwwww when I look at it. Hope to see another post here from you.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was going for the monochromatic look, I will broaden the color pallet next time.
    I was trying to make a contrasting point between the "artificial" and organic delivery of life, but I do agree with you on the layout.
    I will definitely give it another go soon.
    (How soon depends on how I do in March Madness)

    i really like it groupof1. and i really like the monochromatic (is that really a word?!) look.

    personally, composition-wise, i think it would work better if you cut it off just after the word technorganic (nice word!).

    only other criticism is as thedarkness said- some of the vector-looking bits are a little choppy. and the word technorganic would do with being a little ....crisper.

    but definitely nice work

    Thanks, I was trying to make the text sink into the picture like the vines but may have got carried away with the blur tool. And, looking at it now, I see what you mean about cutting it off after the text.

    Oh yeah, yes monochromatic is a word. (technorganic isn't )
    What the world needs now is a nice hot bath.

    Maybe u should test with a duplicate layer of the text, render it and then do a motion blur and test with the layer effects (multiply, screen, etc...) or use a gradient effect on the text layer

    Not has good has some of the other images, but it was one of the images I was doing for MM2008 Round 1, I think it fits a little bit in here ^^

    All I can say herr is I luv it I luv it. I luv how you use the nautilus shell as a focal point and everything else moves outward. I also like the placement of the lettering.
