"Good artists copy. Great artists steal." Most of us got where we are today through the positive influence of other photographers. Some images inspire us to create new ideas, but many are so brilliantly executed that we can't help but want to replicate them. Show us your best effort recreating a great image.

11th place
as a tradition a may-tree is raised every year on the first of may in my village. as WWII (in europe) ended on may 8th i thought this would be a great hommage to one of the best known photos of WWII: http://springfieldpublicschoolsmo.org/depts/edtech/software/moviemaker/images/raisingflagjima.jpg
