Never argue with a stupid person, they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Thanks Mike. For quite some time, I thought you were going to win again, but someone (thank you Someone) pushed me over the line. I was torn between your entry and Andy's, and Andy's won in the end.

I'll put the new theme up tomorrow.

Thanks OB. It became one (a winner), but it had some stiff competition!

Well done Reinardina. Nice colour and shapes. I assume you were using the polar coordinates etc in PS or elements? Let us know.

Thanks Matthew. Hope they'll leave you alone on Sunday!

Thanks Alan, I know you gave it the 'thumbs up' straight away! It is very much an 'in yer face' shot, or rather a 'creation,' that may not be to everyone's taste, but it did pull through.

Well done Reinardina. Nice colour and shapes. I assume you were using the polar coordinates etc in PS or elements? Let us know.

Thanks Paul. To be honest, when I get going with filters etc, I forget what I have used, as I try them all. Well, a lot of them anyway.
I think I did, indeed, use the polar coordinates (PSE8) on a selection of the shot, but the perfect mirror effect was created using the 'mirror filter' in my very old ACDSee editing software, that I got with my first Pentax Optio x camera, all those years ago. It creates, in one go, the perfect horizontal or vertical mirror image. I have not found this possibility on PSE, so I'm hanging on to the old beast.

I'll put up the new challenge later today.

Congrats Re. Looking forward to the next one.

Thanks H. I'll be back later in the morning (hopefully, might be afternoon) with the new challenge.
