Thanks all for kind comments. Sorry it has taken a while to reply but, after two years dodging the COVID bullet, I finally got it a week ago. I feel like I have just gone 10 rounds with Mohammed Ali but I seem to be on the mend now albeit slowly.

The rest of you keep healthy.


Sorry to hear this - I know so many people that have gone down with it recently - take care of yourself

Re: Challenge 899: The Mystery of the Missing Chorister
Thanks all for your thoughts. I seem to be coming out of the other side at the moment but still feeling pretty exhausted after any exertion. It turns out that lots of my friends have all had it at the same time.

It's not going to stop me doing the Friday Challenge, though. There are some things that COVID is not going to do.

This is just a silly one (aren't they all?) while I am on the mend.

Love the tutorial Gordon. Glad you're on the mend.

Pun not intended David...lol.

Good one Michael.
Glad to hear you're on the mend Gordon - 2 cute entries to prove it as well - well done.

Thanks for the positive comments folks.

Glad you're on the mend Gordon. Could have been worse: it could have happened to me, and then you would have been bereft of the longest serving regular member of this forum. Steve would be deprived "Off Topic" entries, not to mention controversial issues! How would you get on without me?

Anyway, here is a reverse with Mrs Ponserby-Smythe omitted this time. Bloody tricky.

FIXED!

Impressive Michael - BUT - the people in the center behind the bench are transparent.

Michael,

You have done what I had considered doing by keeping the one lady and removing everyone else. But I was going to use the original background building. As the said building is only a couple of hundred yards from my home I popped down there to get a shot with nobody in the frame to act as a new backplate. Getting the correct angles and focal length was going to be very tricky so with that in mind and the fact that I was not exactly feeling on top of the world I gave up on the idea.

Yours, however, has been done very nicely.

Well done everyone ... and itís still only Monday😁

That's one way to do it Lloyd. Lovely.



Thanks Dennis, it is well documented that I usually choose a way that requires the least amount of effort...

Perhaps more dumb than silly... let's just say that he is small for his age.

Loyd

Frank thank you very much for pointing out the transparent background. I have now fixed it.

Gordon, doing the Reverse was bl**dy murder

Re: Challenge 899: The Mystery of the Missing Chorister
The first thing I noticed with your first video tutorial was the length of time. The thought flashed through my mind...wow just over 30 seconds...I must be missing something really obvious on how to remove the woman. And then I spent the next 15 minutes wiping up the mouthful of coffee which came spewing out of my mouth after a fit of laughter! Bloody brilliant. I hope you have fully recovered, Gordon.

Michael Sinclair - That is absolutely brilliant.

The elephant just works. It's very funny Loyd.

All round, there's some hilarious work this week. I hope this lady has a sense of humour.

Thank you Anna for a really good smile.

Michael Sinclair I missed you earlier. I like the way you have turned this upside down.

Here's one for you, Gordon. If you want you could print this out and kid your friends on about the time when your very good friends, Wills and Kate, asked you to meet up with them at Caerphilly castle. Kate even allowed you to hold her baby while Nanny took some photographs.
