did you run out of time??
I'm not trying to be rude in the least bit, but compared to your other tiles, this one isn't exactly up to par...it looks like you just used the stamp tool and did a little blending here and there. It's not a bad tile, but you didn't really put any of your own work into it... that's why I thought maybe you ran out of time or something??? :-)
Purposeful Results
When I downloaded the tile I realized that it was part of the kayaking scene. I really wanted to try and create the effect of a localized coherent picture, so I avoided adding anything that would take away from that. If you download the blank tile i recieved and zoom up on it you'll see that my neighbor to the left has a lot of noise within their image. It was difficult to get a good match with it. As for blending, that was about the only way I could seamlessly match my southern neighbor. Admittedly, I could have stuck another kayaker in there or some rocks, but at the time I was too focused on the seemlessness of the tile. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is: No, I didn't run out of time, but in hindsight I could have contributed more to the kayak scene.

Ducks! that woud have been perfect I could have done ducks and a turtle on the log. Doh! Next tile I guess.
