I thought I'd really go for it and have a play with Photoshop, using it on a previously uploaded, and none-manipulated photo.
I quite like the effect!
I adjusted levels, brightness/contrast, sharpness, filters, colour balance and desaturated.
As always, any comments/suggestions are gratefully appreciated.

Thanks for looking

Cheers
Tracey

Yes, very surreal and certainly one for the wall (life sized, for those 'where am I' moments on first waking up). I love the treatment you've made to this.

My first thought was that of Pete's 2nd thought, it looks rather like a Dali painting, very meticulous and interesting. well done

Came across this by chance and I think I like it in a surreal/pop art kind of way reminds me of the piece by Dali with the melting clocks for some reason - or my drink as been spiked and this is just a normal picture of tree!.

It makes the viewer have to do some work to figure out what it is and I like that in a picture - good stuff.

Looking at this picture I think you should stick to what ever it is you are drinking because by god it's working - They have obviously started putting something in the water since I left Leeds.

Thanks for your comments Stuart and praise for the site - it's members like you who make it all worthwhile Smile

I guess I should get round to posting some more pics - just not enough hours in the day at the moment... am hoping Santa brings me a nice new camera so there will be no more excuses! Wink

Have a great Christmas and good luck if you enter the prize draw.
