Having spent an afternoon photographing our local U3A craft workshop, I took my pictures along on Billís laptop to the next session, to run as a slide show. I then spent a little while demonstrating some of the possibilities for manipulation - these were two of the more popular efforts.
Thanks for looking,
Additional note - we take ourselves away to the Lake District for a couple of days, get rained off, come back and theyíve added the Unique Views malarkey. Canít turn your back for a moment but the site does something odd. My percentages are now registering at between 0% and 13,800%. Am I going batty in my old age? Does anyone care???

V2 for me looks hand knitted, all part of the fun series Moira, well done.

I think I like V 2 best.

the thing about views is quite unique isn't it? Wink

I must admit to being a bit puzzled when I saw the thumbnail but what a fine manipulation this is. Don't they look so absorbed. I like the tags too.

I do like V1 moira.A different take on environmental portraiture. It shows a very good natural arangement of the people.

I really like the effect you have created in No.1 Moira. Regarding the percentages they have introduced a change which cannot be retrospective. It now shows the percentage of votes to unique views which IMO will be more useful as time goes by.

Thank you everyone and good morning. Thanks to Albert (and to Sam who attempted to explain this to me by pm last night) - now that I have an upload that isn't a mixture of the old and new systems it makes sense. Sort of...

I dont understand anything any more but there we go, lovely manipulation, I think you have done that yourself as Bernie says with pen and ink, great shots and very well dealt with, your group are going to learn about all apects of Photography as well, go for it.

good morning Mrs Woolybill Smile

quite like the effect in #1
only two uploads today ? i'd be delighted to come back, for photos, and sad, of course, for statistics... you are the first person who actually told me about them (not kidding) when you made a comeback to one of my uploads. tried since to understand statistics, but bloody useless with maths... must be why i've always spent all the money Wink

#1 is like a cartoon, great done manipulation. The statistic will settle out, for myself do I think that it will be interesting but it will take time before it is trustworthy

No 1 for me - I think the comosition really suits the pen and ink feel of the manipulation. I have no access to unique views - sometimes less is more... lol! Jean

I am not sure what the Unique Views is supposed to tell us, if it was the unique views on an image fair enough, I think I am getting too old for this.

It's always good to experiment and have some fun. I find the 2nd version's darkness a little bit eerie, myself. Good work.

Theyre nice, - what effects did you use?

And yes, youre probably going batty, - youre supposed to do that as you get older or your cheating.

I drove past a sign today (must take a pic of it) says Botox is on sale, - only $9 per shot. Its nearing the end of times when new faces are being flogged on the cheap.
