We wanted to root out the Photoshop whizzes among our readers, and we certainly weren’t disappointed. When we set a challenge back in December for you to manipulate a shot of Vegas however you saw fit, you responded with a flurry of creative, innovative and – in some cases – deeply bizarre reinterpretations of his original image.
It was a tough job, but after much deliberation we managed to settle on our favourite…
Photoshop Challenge Winner – Little London by lm1
Our technique and features editor Phil Hall, who supplied the original image, said of this entry: ‘This clever interpretation takes an already unusual scene of Venice recreated in Las Vegas and transposes in iconic London landmarks and tourist attractions. A strong idea – we’re sure it won’t be too long before we see the real thing on the Strip.’
Congratulations to lm1, who wins a year’s digital subscription to AP!
There were lots of great entries though, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out a few of our other favourites. In no particular order, we present the honourable runners-up:
Desert Storm by Jerry1
Vaguely Vegas by Nimbus_Cloud

Who pulled the plug out? by Sidneystreet
SidneyStreet pulls the plug out on Las Vegas in his simple but fun entry. The dirt, muck and overgrown life on the bottom of the ‘sink’ makes a great contrast to the assiduously clean water of the original.
