actualy, I like the turd on the beach, cos everything else is a bit out of focus (but not the bunker), but he's probly a kook anyways, so maybe not hey?

Its done with an effect called tilt-shift. A special macro lens is used, see how the edges are all out of focus. Looks wicked. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilt-shift_miniature_faking

i remember fishing off the 'bricks' there ... they are old war bunkers so they are quite big, but the scale of things do look strange ... tweaking my brain out over monday morning coffee. nice

I think we can all tell by peg-leg on the beach that photoshop class was well worth it.

between the puny surfer, what looks like old bricks, to-scale graffiti and blurry waves, all sense of scale has been lost on me...should I cry photoshop or is this an actual panorama of a day at Capbreton?

1/72 scale model by Airfix. Another example of a legendary traditional company being forced to move with the times. You can just imagine the focus group huddled round a table discussing how to cynically tap into the yoof market. I guess kids just don’t want to build planes and trains anymore. Anyway, good work Captain Kid, I like your attention to detail adding graffiti on the walls, do those transfers come with the kit or was that airbrushing? P.S. I don’t think the glue set very well on his leg though.
