Dali's Style?

By jonlonbla
A rework of a posting from a few days ago. Some folk said the earlier posting was very Dali but without a clock. So I thought it was "time" to add a clock!

I have added a new layer from a photo of an old pocket watch that I have. I took the photo of the watch today specially for this effect.

I then used mesh warp to disfigure the clock and "draped" it over the sea wall. Finally, I posterised the new layer to give it the same effect as the rest of the photo. How does this grab you?? Comments and criticisms welcome.

You may wish to check earlier postings in my PF. Many thanks for all your comments and clicks.

This one is clocking up the clicks .. only time will tell where it will end up! LOL {Smile
Thanks to EPZ members for the tip-off about adding a clock - it seems to have worked. Thanks for commments and clicks.

Dorcas: Dali (daily) + Bacon = Munch-ist I think! {Wink

Slaterm: You've got to start with a quality product ... gold doesn't burn so you need a gold clock ... perhaps when you retire??

This is an image that really caught my eye. I was lucky to visit the Dali theatre museum in Figueres, Costa Brava (and yes I now own a melting clock!). Well worth a visit (it's the most visited museum in Spain), you can get there easily by train from Barcelona or like I did from Girona (which is a hidden Gem); About 10 Euros to get into the museum and is worth every cent - I am a huge Dali fan and the journey was well worth it. The Mae West's face which may be used as a surreal apartment was just amazing as well as Leda Atomica. If you are a big Dali fan make the journey - you'll be glad you did. If you stay in Girona I would highly recommend the Hotel Peninsula. It is right in the middle of the city centre, helpful staff, clean and a great breakfast with various artworks (for sale) adorning the walls of the dining room. Enjoy your visit!
