    Love it Ray...maybe I'll send you a PM and you can share your skills??

    This is a wonderful to save otherwise recycle bin pics. Its very effected I think!
    Looks like the Batmobile will round the corner any second.

    Or perhaps just a man in a dark suit and hat walking could make an interesting addition.

    Great PP Ray, where abouts are these taken? I presume they are in the UK?

    Hi Keith - hope this helps

    For someone playing with photoshop this was tricky for me.

    I wanted to show a bland starkness and which I hope has come through.

    I created a duplicate layer and then ran adjustment layers for levels, curves, saturation and contrast - using each channel as I felt would bring out the starkness and drama intended.

    Then I played with PWL and ran a number of layers with it on so that if I fouled up I could discard without loss of what I was happy with.

    Then I created a mask to insert an almost totally black sky to signify drama etc.

    (Got that as a a download from Mayang, I think)

    Then I used part of the dragan process to finish the image - selecting the bits I wanted and deleting that which was not appropriate.

    Then I added a frame and border - similarly dark.

    If you need it I have the psd files with the layers and anm always happy to send.

    If you need any more details please let me know and i will try to asist.

    All the best for New Year
