Take the image below and manipulate it. You have 7 days to come up with your final product. You may edit your entries after they have been submitted up until the deadline, and you must also leave your previous version visible in the thread for clarity. Addtionally each member may submit 2 entries. At the end of the 7 days there will a 3 day judging period. All final submissions will be placed into a new thread along with a poll where everyone will be allowed to vote for their favorite. The winner may either choose a picture or if they don't want to, people will be able to post pictures the winner may choose from.
Pretty simple. The final product posted must prominently feature the image below in some form or fashion. (For example: it must feature the Mark Twain as seen below. Not just a tree.) You are allowed to add other images if you would like, as sort of a collage but you must provide links to the images. You may not use part of anyone else's submission in your own entry. Doing so could disqualify you. Editing posts so it appears that you posted an image before or after you actually did is also prohibited and may have reprocutions.

Hopefully this all goes well and turns into something we can do on a regular basis. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns let me know.
So good luck and have fun.
