Something slightly different today. A while ago I captured this image of one of the sculptures on the seafront at Seaham, County Durham. After cloning out a couple of lamp posts and a parked car, and adding a touch of magic, I ended up with this result. You can just make out Seaham Harbour in the distance on the right hand side. V2 is the original, except for the cloned out objects, that I had published in our local newspaper last night!

**Got to wondering what this would look like as a mono, so have uploaded V3 - what do you think?

Thank you for all your clicks and comments on my Meerkat upload of yesterday, you are very kind.

Have a great day everyone!

Carol

Great work and imagination in producing V1 Carol but the original is also excelent and deserves to be seen. An unusual sculpture to be sure - any idea what it represents?

Nicely done Carol, both versions work well. I remember Seaham Harbour (vaguely) - had a girlfriend who lived there many (many) years ago. Quite a few of her relatives used to work in that colliery.
