Being quite an avid fan of photo manipulation and having a background in graphic design, it is always interesting to see what may become of my images once a publisher decides to use it for a book cover.
Submitting work to a photo library is not quite the same as fulfilling a specific brief - I tend to create images mainly for myself, but hope that ultimately they get picked out, bought and used by art buyers. What happens next is usually beyond my control. Will it get the whole cover? A bit of a cover? Will it be tweaked or changed to become something different? Will one image be turned into two?
I just never know, but trust in the judgement of others.
A friend joked that I should have left the island out, but I liked the sense of adventure it represented.
