Trying out a new design style

I've been experimenting with a new graphic style for some of my designs in my Zazzle store and this is what I've come up with...

A new life for low res shots?

These were shots I took a very long time ago,when digital photography was in its infancy. The shots were great but the resolution was far too low to do anything useful with.

A shame because they were great images that deserved sharing. I thought I might try and "remix" the images and use them as designs for some gear in my Zazzle store. I loved the shots, the top one was one I took of a dancer on stage, the bottom one was one of the part-goers and the middle ones were shots of dolphin backdrops painted by my company.
(You can see the gear I've designed using these images by clicking the link under each picture.)

I hope you like how they turned out—I put in a lot of effort!

Dancing under laser lights, she looked fantastic!

..now that's what I call "eye contact" - he's swum right up for a closer look at you!

I love the way the sunlight is dappling their backs in the shallow lagoon

What a great portrait this was, now even more intense!


I liked the composition, structure and form of each of these images and I think the approach I've taken has worked. They're still great images, but presented differently and, more to the point, at a much higher resolution. The one with the pod of dolphins, for example, was 700 pixels wide, now it's 6400! All that means that I can now share them with all my Zazzle customers, which is nice :)

So is it thumbs up or thumbs down for you? I'd love to hear what you have to say :)
