Hi guys,is it really as they say personally i believe not,for if the grass was always greener on the other side ,there would be no body left on this side , not everything is indeed black and white ,this i am trying to depict in this manipulation,not all is as it appears,hope you like ,thanks for the C&Cs on my last upload ,regards

Mike - interesting proposition here and you have created something thought provoking to present it.

Grass is always greener on the other side but its not always as black and white as that - I really like it and your challenge to our more usual assumptions is first class - excellent
