Its been raining for months and there was no way Brooke could avoid getting wet on her way to her School formal!

With rainy weather bordom setting in and no fresh images, nothing is safe in Photoshop!

    Excellent use of the conditions Its a bit like that here in QLD at the moment wet wet wet…..

  • This was taken in Coffs. We are sitting in the tail of Queensland’s “big wet” Rumour has it that the sun may make an appearance at least once before 2011!! Here’s hoping! Thanks OZZREBELXTI

    The contrast off her white dress with the dark background created a very different mood which I found interesting. Nice piece.

    Wonderful image! The little splash by the feet makes it look totally real! I do hope she didn’t get that wet on the way to the Formal!

  • Thank you Trish, you can probably tell that having three months of rain has finally gotten to me. I’ve hardily been able to take a photo (I should have hundreds of wildlife shots this time of year) so I have resorted to catching up on my reading and spending hours mucking around in Photoshop! Of course I wanted this to “convincing” without trying to make it too real. Kinda fantasy image, I’m reluctant to put this sort of thing up as there are so many great artists on RedBubble but hey, you only learn really from others reaction. I think Brooke actually did get wet but not from sitting knee deep in pool water!!
    Thanks again for always being so encouraging. Rumour has it that the sun might show soon so I should be able to “get out” again!! LOL
