A shot of someone’s backyard through a gap in the fence in a Newtown laneway merged in Ultimate FX using the Arithmetic function with a picture of cracked concrete and then re-merged with itself after using Advanced Liquid and Blur and repeated adjustments in contrast and brightness.

I think this shows that with two fairly unpromising pictures, something wonderful can emerge.

Born in London, grew up in Perth, Western Australia, now living in Sydney.
I have always loved photography but only started to take it as seriously as I now do around 2008.
Mostly, my pics are animals and urban scenes, but really I will make a photo of anything that I deem suitable; because, I love variety and making different images.
