Canon 5D MKII plus Canon G10 plus Photoshop plus Topaz (Adjust & Detail) plus onOne (Perfect Resize & Perfect Mask) plus patience!

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

  • I went to a NAPP Photoshop one day seminar yesterday and the folks at onOne Software gave a demo during the lunch break with a drawing. I WON the draw much to my amazement and now have the full Perfect Photo Suite 6 which is really cool so I’m not sleeping for a week and you’ll see lots of new work coming up!!!! :-) Pleased you liked this one, thanks very much indeed.

  • I guess castles are my ultimate favorite subject but these planes are a very close second. They’ll never make me rich but are a hell of a lot of fun to create. Thanks for the “awesome” John I really appreciate that, hope you’re doing great, cheers.

    Awesome capture Chris, you must have been sitting on one of those soft clouds to get that shot.

    Cheers Jude

  • Well, I can’t give away trade secrets but let’s just say my life was never in danger. My Mother taught me that sitting on damp clouds can give you piles! :-) Really happy that you liked the image Jude, thanks very much indeed. Cheers.
