This is an update to the original that is here on my page.  As with the previous image, I am the copyright holder on all aspects of this artwork.  The photographs and the image itself are mine (stating the obvious due to excelent work by the mods in enforcing copyright laws).

Hey John. YOu know I'm a fan of the original, still this is interesting. At first I thought I could see faces in the billowing background, then I realized that it was what I wanted to see. It made the image more surreal and more intimate for the viewer than the previous one. Nice touch, I'd still like to see more of your work. Keep at it.

:-) John Samuel Butler replies: "Thanks Doug. I have been slower to create recently with school and life taking up most of my free time. Sometimes I like revisions well enough to post them, this was one of those times."

Heya John! I know I am one to speak, but I would love to see some new stuff up here. How goes the educational slog?
