The Flying Days Are Over by Cluke111
The Flying Days Are Over
Hello and thank you for visiting.

The image of the statue is from a visit to the site of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Basilica.  It was part of an exhibition by the artist Igor Mitoraj and was placed on the lawn outside the main ticket offices to promote the exhibition. It took me a while to get the shot because I had to wait for the moment when kids weren't climbing all over it :D Everything else has been done in pp using various software packages, Smart Photo Editor for the principle treatments and the sky, Photoscape for cloning and clean up, and Picasa for cropping, resizing and some brightness/contrast/saturation adjustments.
Yep, I don't use photoshop, go figure. Maybe it's time to start :D

Thanks again and I hope that you enjoy the work.

Ain't It Grand - Mono Cool Art Edit
I was having a play with "Ain't it Grand" and out popped this really nice render. Well then of course I had to slap a frame around it and upload it as a really cool artsy edit - didn't I?

Pretentious? Moi? :D

Thanks for the visit and I hope that you enjoy the work.

My name, or at least my internet name, is Cluke, but because of other users getting to this name before me I'm more easily found as Cluke111. This has been with me for some 5 or 6 years now so the name has pretty much stuck.

Having taken early retirement a few years ago I'm enjoying a second chance at life, love and travel and I would now describe myself as an aspiring, opportunist, amateur photographer, a wannabee artist, a keen gardener and all round nice guy - although my partner would probably suggest that house husband should come before all of the previous descriptions, and that the word "grumpy" should appear at least once.:-)

I'm an opportunist photographer in that up until now most of my travel and location photography has been done when on family trips and holidays. And that usually means seeing a picture, getting out the camera and setting the controls, carefully composing and taking the shot, plus a couple of extra ones, and then legging it like hell to catch up with the family who've grown bored with waiting and wandered off out of sight! Any other work has either been done in my garden or at locations that can be easily reached from home in between school drop off and pick up times. :-)

I've also discovered an interest in some of the more simple fractal programmes and I'm currently trying to make space at home to rekindle my painting and drawing interests. All in all a very productive time of life.

Many thanks for visiting my page and I hope that you enjoy the work.


Cluke :D

I know this has been on my front page for a while now, but the fact is I like it so much that until I can come up with something as pleasing I'm reluctant to replace it. So please, enjoy. :-)

I got a little fed up with my front page so I thought that I would give this StashWriter  thingy a go after seeing the results on other Deviants front pages. This coincides nicely with some shots that I've posted from a recent holiday in Rome where I was trying out a new camera. I've been very
 pleased with the images so far and I wanted to try and display some select ones as a set. I like what I'm seeing so lets hope this looks as good when I upload it.

And whilst I'm here I'd just like to say a big thank you to all of my watchers for all of the support and encouragement that you've given me over the years and thank you to any other visitors that have been graceful and generous in commenting and faving my work

Here goes then....
