Quickdraw contest – digital telephoto.
Redrawn, smudged, textured and blurred. Used Photoshop CS2.
They are part of a series – “truly scene” – which I’ve worked on recently (mostly in the middle of the night ….).

My renderings are in this instance are built from scanograms
Our thanks to Power Retouche for the prizes and to all the entrants.
