Droste watch version 2 by shannejw

Droste watch version 2

This is a second attempt at this, and a twofer - both for the Dogwood 52 week challenge where the challenge is:
Inspiration: Black and White
Your inspiration this week is to simply take an amazing Black and White photograph of any subject you want.

About the Inspiration category:
“In this wide-open category, we start with a simple inspiration. Use this inspiration as creatively as you can. There are no rules so feel free to think outside of the box.”

And for this week's Get Pushed 338, where I am partnered with @30pics4jackiesdiamond - whose challenge was:
We are partnered for get pushed this week. How do you feel like a double edged challenge? Choose one of your more recent favs and recreate it BUT with a twist - using the style of one of people you follow. Give a link to the shot you are recreating and the @name of your 'stylist'

So this is a second attempt at a Droste watch, because I've always wanted to try this and last time everyone was having a go it was with programmes I couldn't get to work. It has been processed manually in GIMP rather than using the MathMap plug in - so lots of layers, reduced by 80% stacked. It was inspired by @salza's droste effect portrait and because @northy has been using a vortoscope, I was channeling both her anarchic takes on challenges, use of b&w and the vortoscope. I moved the original backwards as I'm currently trying to post a picture a day taken on the day, I'm not sure how far through the year that will last.

Three good things:
1. this version I'm happy with
2. I finally finished the Christmas wreath made from offcuts from dressmaking to put away in the roofspace with the other Christmas stuff.
3. Jambalaya for supper worked well
and/or - last nasty scary envelope was fine inside!

Thank you for looking, I don't thank people individually on my photos, but try to look at your photos instead. (If you just fav it I can't see you did as I'm not a pro.)
@30pics4jackiesdiamond - see what you think of this second attempt at your challenge

Very cool Droste effect! You have a ton of patience to get this done - and a lot more PS knowledge than i have to do it!
Well done!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond - it was interesting to do, something I haven't really tried properly before, but it was slow and systematic to get it done
