This has been manipulated... (the sunrise is in fact a sunset!).

Anyway thank you so much for calling by - I do hope you will comment and poke fun - please feel free to be highly critical

Best wishes

Thank you all so much for your valued comments (of course you have all been too kind to mention that I spelt Quo Vardis with an R - I think it should be Quo Vadis - (I am so stupid after a glass or two of Merlot!)).

Best wishes

Thanks so much guys - In actual fact it was a sunset that I hadn't been able to do much with so I turned it upside down (so I guess that makes it a sunrise) it made me feel a little uneasy and slightly omnipotent - I just hope the power doesn't go to my head - I might start jumping red lights or something!

Best wishes

An interesting arangement which is always worth producing and finding out what the tools actually do. Well thought out.

Cheers guys - yes it is amazing what all these different tools can do - to be honest these image layers were only ever at best modest - so merging them has done the trick. What I was trying to get was something a little 'golden compass' sort of just slightly other world (hence the upsidedown sunset).

Thanks so much for looking.

Cheers

Robert

This is one of those montages made to make us lose our bearings (or marbles). Love the compass as counterweight to the sunrise-set thing.

I like the way you have approached this image and used the various images to compose the final result wich I think is superb.

Thank you very much Lucy,Pauline,Steve and John your comments very very much valued.

Just another point of very minor interest but the compass actually comes from the tallship - another bit of symmetry maybe.

Very best wishes
