Nice job.  Now that you've done that think about doing the two versions without the face maybe with references to your originals to illustrate what could be done to customize the photo. 

 

 OK, but I think I will submit a completely different background and leave neptune as is. The new one has been sitting on my boot drive as half done,  until I find a face or something to put in the middle. Maybe submit it as a background only, for the client to use in something bigger..

Been a quiet month for photography, but I spotted this contented pig dozing and wallowing in a mud bath while walking around Beamish museum.

Great pic. That's one very happy-looking and lucky piggy. Over here, he most likely would spend his life crammed in an industrial barn with hundreds of his fellow inmates and never see the light of day.

I'm not particularly proud of my photos, but I do like this one..

(even tho I'd rather the bear be in their natural habitat).

You weren't there on Monday afternoon, were you? We thought they were out of sight in the nice cool byre but a helpful child spotted, er, probably her, from a vantage point. Same pig, same Pockerley puddle....

 

Hi Mark

 

No, we were with relatives from Canada, and went there on Saturday 3rd? Lovely warm sunny day, but the weather has since deteriorated to the extent that my allotment is now a swamp.

That pig is fortunate to live at an outdoor museum John, although we do see, and smell, pigs being raised outdoors in these parts, possibly due to EEC regs regarding animal welfare, or maybe because outdoor reared comes at a premium price?

Sunrise over a weatherfront 2 days ago.

I nearly stayed in bed when the alarm clock went off because I couldn't see any clouds from my place but forced myself to go. What a surprise to discover amazing cloud formations at my destination.

I kid you not, it was THAT orange.

You broke it???

I haven't seen this one, I visited the Tully one three years ago.

Rather impressive.

 

Have a good day.

With declining congregations, the church can be said to be "at the crossroads" in 2019, though this church is a rather literal representation...

I've come to stock photography very late in life (using a range of zero to hopefully seventy-odd years plus old, I'm much nearer the wrong end) so as I may have mentioned most of my near 20,000 images here were taken with no thought to them having any use. Snaps taken on family holidays and trips out taken just to show parents and granny where we've been make up a large percentage of my non-news collection, of which I've spent the last few years trawling through for usable images. This performer outside the Sacré-Cœur in Paris is one such image which I initially thought would be difficult to make acceptable. I only shot jpeg and it was horribly back lit so it took a bit of work but I'm pleased with it and it passed QC today.

I posted this here yesterday and in today's metrics, I see it was also zoomed yesterday. Coincidence??

Lot of Monarch Butterflies in Toronto this year. Counted 30 in  a flower patch about 25 X 25 feet in size.

They were so busy nectaring they were very approachable. They gather on the North Shore of Lake Ontario, at this time of year,  before migrating to Mexico. 200 mm with extension tubes.
