"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.

10th place
Another challenge site had a similar image and I liked the effect a great deal so I just had to try it myself. It actually took me a while to find a puzzle with pieces the size that I saw that I liked. Maybe I was too picky, but I'm not a puzzle master and wanted it to go together quickly. I think that they still did a better job than I, but I was pretty happy with a first go at it. Anyways, the original can be found here: http://www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=767888
