Whilst in Ireland we visited a village called Sneem and as we wandered around the town I spotted this tree and it reminded me of a stag's head. I knew I could "do" something with it so I took a shot - here is my finished result, and it IS Silly Sunday after all! I have uploaded the original as V2 for those of you who may be interested, and before you ask (Mick!) no, we never visited the Tavern!!

Thanks for all your continued support and comments!

Another well spotted chance to get your creative mind set into gear, Carol, and the finished result backs up your initial impression of the possibilities inherent in the original shot.

Well spotted Carol, it certainly does look like an animal's head Wink It works very well against the textured background without the distractions Smile

AWESOME eyes. Sooo well spotted, Carol...lol GrinGrinGrin

And wonderful manip to highlight the head.

To me, though, it looks like a hump-backed Gollum with antlers Smile
