    I don't know what they all see but I can't make out anything from that .. maybe my eyes are to tired .. the only thing I have in mind it the small green bird on the top left

      It's a broken animal skull submerged in swamp water, with teeth pulled and placed among plants of the area for their textures and colors etc. :]

    I find this very interesting. It's almost like nature threw up, but it's still pretty. Far prettier then when us humans do.

      I tried to strike a balance somewhere between thrown together roughly and placed too clinically. I don't know if throw up was what I was going for but, at lest you found it interesting :D

    This bears so much resemblance to still-life portrayals of old, via realistic oil painting. I see a distorted face in there, in profile.

      That is what I had in mind, old oil still life. Wanted to give it a bit of a darker turn with the subject matter of swamp and bone, but still. This might be fun to paint some day :]

    Amazing, beautiful colours. The palette is interesting considering what's in the image.

      Thanks indeed. The trick with building the color palette was to find things that would bring a vividness to offset the overcast and flat lighting, hopefully I did that enough to make it interesting.

      Oh you definitely did, the greens really bring out the warmth of the brown, which nicely contrasts the 'steel' colour of the water to the top left.

    That is a very interesting formation. I see the shape and colours of a parrot. :)
