My original image of a statue outside Chaplin’s cinema on board P&O cruise ship Oriana taken with a canon S90. Have been working on this image for some time now in many different guises, and have narrowed it down to 2 favourites, but I can’t see the wood for the trees any longer so I’m uploading both to see which is the more popular as I love them both

Processed in PS elelements then painted in DAP using portraitist mode with a portrait mask over face & clothing

The alternative is here

Thanks to everyone who visits & comments on my work

Due to time constraints I’m no longer just saying individual thanks when someone comments on my work, but I will always try to repay the compliment by visiting & commenting on your work

As a child my plane crashed in the Himalayas & I was raised by an advanced civilisation that taught me photography, ESP & precognition, no, wait that was the Champions wasn’t it?

Ah well, 50+ & getting more muddled by the day.

Hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to buy anything you like enough. :-)
