Blast off!

By TrevBatWCC    
First of all, I'd like to thank again Rob Fielding (RLF) and Pamela Vinton (pamelajean) for their UAs on my previous upload "Vicar's Close: A different view!", great to know people appreciate my digital fiddling around! Grin
Another bit of digital doodling - not my best I'll admit - but I thought the Spinnaker, taken from the ferry on my return from the Isle of Wight last April to Portsmouth, looked like it was ready to take off into space, so for a bit of Sunday Silliness, launched it! Grin

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 5 and Photoshop Elements 11.

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

Great bit of Sunday silliness, have often taken shots of the Spinnaker but will now look at it in a different way Trev.

Well, if it's not there tomorrow we'll know who to blame.....WinkWink.
Nice bit of processing, Trev, producing a great fun image.
I could not have done this.......your processing skills are way behind what I might attempt.

This is hilarious! A very convincing bit of trickery, Trev.

We haven't tried Bill's in York, we've taken to visiting Côte Brasserie a bit nearer to the Minster - though we have to save up a few pennies first Blush

Heck Trev I was on it that day. Gave he a hell of a headache. Thought it was the booze. Thank goodness it was only you and your blue touch paper.
