Contest goal:

An image exhibiting the Droste effect depicts a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar picture would realistically be expected to appear. This smaller version then depicts an even smaller version of itself in the same place, and so on. Only in theory could this go on forever.
Make an image that clearly shows this Droste Effect... But be aware NOT to mirror your image, just make it reappear over and over again in 1 image.

ziggyx2003: any chance of a little further explanation of what NOT to do, finding it a little confusing, thank you ( 5 years and 1940 days ago )
CorneliaMladenova: I think the Mod have perfectly explained the contest goals. Ziggyx2003, you can get more detailed info from the Escher's works, also recommend you to have a look at the following link: http://www.josleys.com/article_show.php?id=82 ( 5 years and 1940 days ago )
wazowski: What Cornelia says. Also, wikipedia is your best friend http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droste_effect ( 5 years and 1939 days ago )
jawshoewhah: it seems like there's a few entries that people have just copied other artists' ideas. ( 5 years and 1934 days ago )
erikuri: Jaw, do you really think there's much to do? If you go at Flickr, for example, there's a bunch of works, of different people, but with the same idea... it's not so simple beeing different! ( 5 years and 1934 days ago )
langstrum: Totally agree with erikuri, it took me a night to find every possible works as I can to see what people is doing. This technique is not very difficult but the effect is really nice, that's why so many people tried that before ( 5 years and 1934 days ago )
Contest Moderator: any entry submitted after 2000hrs GMT Friday 19th March will be removed ( 5 years and 1932 days ago )

An entry that evolved as I was working. I originally only thought to put the camera in the field, but realized that it was too lame and thought to add another camera perhaps in the distance, facing the first-person camera. After being unable to find a suitable stock photo, I added a squirrel insetad. Random, perhaps, but adorable. After everything was done, I thought it would be best to stick everything in another camera for ultimate effect.

Thanks to sxc.hu for the excellent photos! (5 years and 1937 days ago)
