Hmmmmmmmm not sure what to think, April 1st challenge, part of me expects this whole challenge to be a prank!!!

Anyway, fortunately I still have some of the original files from some of the pics I took in 2002, looking through them all I realised I really have progressed over the years, some of my stuff from back then was frankly rubbish. Though ironically, still my highest entry for all of my DPC history is one of the first pics I entered back in 2002.

I always liked this pic but never used it.

Very little done except to the sky which was totally blown out on the original so I used PS's cloud filter to create some new clouds which I just put over the existing sky and made virtually transparent, mainly to give some texture to the blown out areas. Cheating under normal challenge rules but allowed this time.

I wonder if this will turn out like the rubber duck challenge........

Beautiful subject, just not quite clear enough. Lighting is flat.
