Just checking in to praise Laura and Pam for stunning work! I am hard pressed to chose a favorite --- so I'll stick with collecting for the Chelsea plaque.

Thanks and huge hugs to Laura and Pam.

Hi Lizzy,
That mottling of the faces happens when I use photo shop to outline the figures. In a final version version I would keep the outline but edit any unwanted effects to clean up the image. That one was just a close up of a previous image to show the individual photos in relation to the band. Pam

My preference is for Laura's mosaic,as it seems more of a tribute to to the years of music and poetry, and I love the idea of the light getting in..I would prefer not to have "thanks ..etc' written on it..the mosiac is the thanks and I think it takes from the image.
I would like to see some of his own words subtly put in through the mosaic...and if it was possible, would like if there were some images of the many worldwide concerts...and perhaphs one of his audience listening to him in the rain in dublin last year, where we wore 'our famous blue raincoats' and did not notice the rain!

I just wanted to check in to say that we have been working on making our final images and aren't quite done yet. Pam

I'm in awe of both of your contributions,but when push comes to shove,I think that Laura's idea with the light shining through
has my vote it took my attention straight away.I'm torn between the first image and the one with more colour in it,maybe a compromise
between the two?
Oh God! I just compared the two again and I'm in two minds again! Whichever, both are great!

Well done to you both and thank you for your hard work.

Whew! I just made my way through this whole thread in 15 mins, and think Leonard Cohen fans are mighty talented! All of the suggestions have been amazing. Can't wait to see the finals up. THANK you all who have created these what a wonderful break from work!
