"Bean diving lately?"...

By NDODS    
An image that I created especially for Sully Sunday which was inspired by the one and only 'Mr Bean' I hope that you like it, and please no flatulence jokes....

Thank you all so very much for you most gracious comments following yesterdays upload 'Circles of Life'. I must apologise if I never got to view and comment on your images, but I spent the entire day in bed following several seizures. They are a drain, but I try to remain positive and look forward to the next day whenever possible.

A special thank you goes to EAS (Ann) for presenting me with her most appreciated User Award.

May you all have a wonderful Sunday, and above all be happy....

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

I think Photoshop is too over used in producing images that look nothing like the scene the photographer saw when he pressed the shutter, this on the other hand is Photoshop used to its full potential as an artistic tool.

The time and skill needed to produce this just shines through.

I have great pleasure in placing my user award next to this.

I think Photoshop is too over used in producing images that look nothing like the scene the photographer saw when he pressed the shutter, this on the other hand is Photoshop used to its full potential as an artistic tool. - I totally agree with Gary_d - I think a picture should stand or fall by how it was taken, not how it is manipulated unless like your beans.

Talking of beans this is just a seriously funny image and I love it, Nathan!!!

Your imagination knows know bounds, and is only matched by your ps skills, my friend.

Did you experiment with different brands before settling on Branston's? Heinz, Tesco own label, etc?

Dear all, I am going to bed now, my mind completely blown away by the vast response this image has received. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that such a 'Silly Sunday' image could be worthy of so many appreciated accolades. I am what I am, and I simply do what I do. If I can make people smile, that in turn males me happy.

Thank you all once again.

Highest regards to you all.

Good Night
