    Thought I'd progress some trial runs & see what transpires
    For me its about making the camera lie through its teeth

    I'll play with this one:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/maxjaguar/6310606344/" title="2011 08 17 - FAKESCAPE by Milan Jovanovic /pictogramax, on Flickr">"600" height="600" alt="2011 08 17 - FAKESCAPE"></a>

    And then reveal that the distant land really is a window frame:

    Great images in here! I like a bit of surrealism from time to time (actually quite often)... Luke, how did you do that? It's truly awesome!

    I used to be quite active with a group on flickr that held biweekly manipulation challenges. We would all get one image and could do whatever we wanted to it. We were all at different skill levels, but it only served to make me push harder......especially at the beginning before I knew how to do anything. There were a few frustrating days where I would spend a couple hours trying different things and come up with nothing. It also forced me to think creatively.

    This was my starting point for this one...... http://www.flickr.com/photos/24506073@N06/5007773773/ , then I played with the color, and then I gave it a ripple, and then added a boat (from this friend's photo.....I think.....it was a long time ago) http://www.flickr.com/photos/79047137@N00/4805093762/ and then I used a Photoshop plug-in by Flaming Pear software called "Flood" to add the water (with reflection) http://www.flamingpear.com/flood.html
