Not so much a Silly Sunday upload, more a Surreal Sunday image. With a bit playing around in PS Elements and template from a Digital Photo magazine CD a few months ago, came up with this René Magritte style effort. The original not particularly exciting image from my visit to The Hepworth Wakefield is shown in V2. It’ll probably bomb Sad, but you’ve got to have a go at something different...and I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel!
Techie stuff – see Exif
Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, and tweaked in Photomatix Pro & Elements 6.

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

It won't 'bomb' I'm sure, Trev: a very clever spot of manipulation here, making for a most intriguing image from the original. I do like the thinking behind this and the execution has worked so effectively. very well done, mate.

Yes, I remember the issue which contained the template. Well worked.

Magritte comes to Yorkshire... V1 is creative, but the V2 original is my style of picture - random humanity against a strong linear composition. It deserves its own upload.

Oh dear, I don't like to say that V2 is good, considering all the work you have done on it to produce V1. Your manipulation has held my attention for quite some time, and I think it is very clever having the newspaper inserts fitting into the background, but in mono. I like it a lot.
