Jelly Beantles

By TrevBatWCC    
Re my missing versions problem yesterday, I was contacted by EPZ staff by PM in the afternoon, and it seems there were issues uploading at exactly the same time as I uploaded my initial image Sad On their advice I retried, and the 2 additional versions have now appeared! Thanks David SmileSmile So, anyone desperate to have a look at what they missed can click on this link Elvis is in the building.
Walking around Albert Dock, I passed a sweet shop and in the window was this framed mosaic, about 4 x 3 feet in size. The sign at the top says "This portrait of The Beatles made from over 15,000 Jelly Beans was made to celebrate Let It Be, the West End and Broadway jukebox musical, based on the career of The Beatles from 1962 to their break-up in 1969". I wonder how many jelly beans got eaten by the artist(s) during its constructionů! Wink
(In actual fact, on inspecting closely an image taken from the other side of the dock and zooming in, there are people stood in front, and it's more like 6 x 4 feet!).

Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 4 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

An inspired piece of art or not. Depends if you've got a sweet tooth I suppose. Interesting shot though Trev.

How very clever and original, Trev: makes a great window display.
And good title to have come up with.
