Column reversal

By woolybill1
Grey's Column, Newcastle upon Tyne, reflected in my favourite puddle. I know the throng of people is inverted and cut in two; I believe a dash of Surrealism is healthy Smile

Until you explained this, Bill, I was going to say that it was a lovely piece of digital manipulation, then I realised exactly what it is!! Very well spotted and captured, superb shot!

Different and intriguing, spent time looking around this and trying to figure out what you had done to make it so surreal. Then gave in and read your explanation. What a dumpling (me, that is )!
Very clever and like the two people at the base of the column as they add to the mystery of the shot. , this would be great in a gallery certainly get people talking.!
Time to stop blethering on

Yes you have cracked it this time Bill. Certainly the best picture of Grey's monument I have seen and wouldn't change any of it.

Nice work Bill, and it certainly does us all good to get away from the real World now and then.
