Taken today in a boatyard nr Sandwich, quite a few boats were derelict and in various states of repair, this was the view through an old porthole of one of the derelict boats. I missed this shot first time round, but my good mate Rod pointed this one out to me, so if you see another similar image, it was Rod`s idea.Wink

What a splendid grotty frame for the inside of the boat Darryl !!
I would have missed the shot too.
I would have been too busy taking the grot itself,
without thinking about using it as a ''frame'' !!

Have to to echo Mick's comment, Darryl: I would almost certainly not have spotted this photo opportunity.
Makes another clever unusual image, following on from Stanchion Sunburst.

Well spotted, Rod. Clever use of the port hole. Maybe off-set it in the frame a bit more. Nicely done, Darryl.

Blimey, did you have time to get your shoes off when you got in!! Smile you uploaded this a bit quick! Smile don't worry there's plenty of votes and awards to go round (you can have the ones i dont getSad).

Even though it was my idea, you have the better shot, so well done, it has processed nicely, keep up the good work.

wonderful grot window.

now here is an idea... You need PS to do it but gimp or so should also work.
next time try to take TWO shots without moving to much. One you focus on the foreground, one on the B/g.
then align them in PS ( select BOTH layers, go to layers, auto align) .
now you can try auto blend but I rather do it by hand, but the foreground sharp one above the background sharp and erase the middle bit Smile
presto!!
