I saw the stock photo and thought 'what a cool photo, if only it weren't from such an orthographic angle.' So I decided to try and excite the concept. Originally, many ideas passed through my head; too many to list here. I considered making her a mermaid, a fairy floating through some woods, an elf, a satyr... I considered vertically flipping the composition which opened up a whole new galaxy of possibilities. I realized that anyone else in the contest would probably be thinking those very same things. So I went with the last idea that popped into my head: same concept; more excitement.
And if you're wondering why I named it: "Interpret This", well, it just felt right. Recently, I have inched away from contriving titles and instead I go with what feels right.
