Useless Life Preserver. I'd hate to be stuck drowning and have one of these thrown at me. Member reactions:
Nice application of effects. I would have applied the drop shadows to only the actual ropes though so as to show more of a difference between the solids and the fluids. Just a slight white edge on the bottom right side of the lower righthand rope. Try to use the much larger resolution image, which is provided, for any future contests as it will give you much more freedom with your overall work.
Thanks for the tips. I've taken on board your suggestions, and have uploaded a modified version of the image (using the full resolution size).
Congratulations, Shark - another great concept, chop, and another win. You, sir, are on a roll.
thanks NewsMaster. I've got a lot of time on my hands at the moment, and I love being able to divert some of it into photoshopping images for the interesting comps here.
Photoshop this life preserver image any way you wish. Examples may include changing its shape, merging the life preserver with some other object or animal, including the life preserver in paintings. These are just some ideas.

Many thanks to Lyina for the idea, and to Stock Exchange for providing the source image.
