Having finally got round to learning how to use photoshop properly I thought I would post something I'd had a 'fiddle' with. This is a manipulated version of my last upload - not in a massively adventurous way, but you have to start small I guess Smile

well... welcome to photoshop.

this ought to get more clicks than the last one becuse its better. jumps of the screen more, the colours aren't so muddy as last time.

better crop too, the half windows on the last one were a bit distracting.

i might have kept the small tuft of grass by the back wheel, but thats me.

Excellent!..sometimes 'less is more' with photoshop anyway (i should follow the same principle!))

Anyways, better than the first version i think, the colour really pops out of the image

wow, this is great - bit different and very nice treatment. MUCH prefer it to the other version, which on its own is ok, but this really stands out when they're side by side.

You could crop a tiny bit more off of the right where the bricks of the wall stand out at the bottom of the shot. But its great as it is.
