No, I forgot the photo credit, it's by Mike Dinet - but I did the special effects!

I'm quite getting into this - and I've found an easier way of doing it, but it depends a lot on the original photo

Well just to finish this thread which has rather wandered from surfing,
here is a psychedelic image which might be considered more relevant ...

Thanks Chris for this one ... it gives me some ideas in case that I would like to repaint it in the future :mrgreen:
But for the time being I like it in its original color, so it may take many years before then 8)
See what happens !

Cheers,
Fred
