That's some clever manipulation Pete! Although I don't comment often I do read most of the popular threads in the forums - take it easy Sir!

Haha. Very nicely done.
If you can't find the off switch, try the volume control.

Well said Jeanie Smile

The placement of your hands and expression match the concept of the image and the title. Gosh you really look like you need to switch off Pete!
Although I like the texture layer, I would of liked to have seen more of you hands and eyes comming through. But thats just my taste.

Great job done Smile

I took the GE award off Jeanie, but thank you very much Smile. I don't think I should have awards.
Besides someone will get jealous or call you a brown noser.
Thanks for all the comments guys. The switch is back to on Wink

Thats sad its well worthy. Sad
Don't think I'd ever call Jeanie a brow noser, or a brown noser either/ I might be old but I'm no daft.
Time off is the answer. Read my e-mail before you get away from the computer.

All the very best

Thats a fine piece of processing Pete.

Might have made it a bit more macabre around the hole in your brain , but then , dont wanna scare the kids eh.

Count me in, the Trooper and I make a formidable team if you ever need to venture into the South Wales Valleys...

Like the processing, an excellent piece of manipulation.

Watcha Pete,
clever bit of work.
If that's how you feel, you do need the off switch and a good long rest.
Remember, there is no need to rush anything. Important things in life: The sun will still be in the sky however long you take; you're still breathing; everything is right with the universe, all else is of no consequence

Like your concept in this one Pete, good manipulation, but for me I would have preferred less texture on the eyes and face.

...its in your heart! So long as you listen to your mind talk & this mind talk commands your attention you dance to its tune. The off switch is saying no! I really like this Pete since I know what it is like driveness & demands are so below the line while we are in this space we overlook living! Thank you by the way for recognising my work recently. It means a lot to me!

Ooooo... I know this feeling well!!!
Love that on/off switch, the empty stare...
But what really makes the 'cant be a***ed' feeling believable is the stubble!

Nice one Smile

Wish I knew. I had a terrible night's sleep last night, worrying about off-site archiving and improving the speed of my workflow. And that's without fretting about the essay I have to write before Monday and my tax return! Not to mention how to start earning a living again. If there only was a switch, I'd turn it off every night!

I'm managing to resist the temptation to click on Report Comment, in the hope that Cormy will actually read back over the 8-month history of Jeanie'saward! At least this has answered one question for me - I now know that for this week's uploads at least my GEA button will not disappear like Cinderella's finery at midnight tonight, and I could come back to haunt the GEA Gallery for years to come. If I wanted to. Which I don't.
