In Iceland you also find art - of commerical and home made type - in a lot of places. In the harbour area of Seydisfjördur I came across this funny guy that was sitting infront of a little house - which I think was a museum.
I took his photo and knew he might make quite a bit of fame one day - I had plans with this picture.
I know a lot of people who do photoshop art and composings. They, of course, are always looking for interesting photos as part of their works. I was planning on giving this photo away for this purpose.
I was only back for 2 days and had just browsed through the photos once quickly when a bunch of people were thinking of starting a speed battle in photoshop. They were looking for a stock picture for it so I handed it out right away.
The battle is pretty simple: 4 hours of time from the first glimpse of the stock photo to handing it in for the voting. The stock picture has to be used as a central element in the composing. There are no other rules about how much else you include or what topic it has to serve.
My little photo of a piece of nicely carved wood now made a key element in a bunch of cool composings. If you want to check them out, look here:
