Good Vibrations

Here's a rapidly created image to replace my mediocre night shot of the Queen Mary II in Southampton, with thanks and apologies to nev who had already commented on that.

I like to join in with the themes if possible but I was short of material and I really didn't want to take a picture of a rock and post that. I suspect, however, that this interpretation of the theme will be quite popular too.

The image wasn't particularly good as I had to shoot through glass into a mobile recording studio (on the back of an articulated lorry). The Rock theme came to the rescue as I was able to add and offset a couple of extra layers to give the impression that this guy was really rockin'. In fact he was, but a single image didn't portray that very well.

chunter: Yes, he was positively perky in there - very animated. Thanks Chantal.

i'm glad i am not going crazy and seeing ghost ships. i like how you've moved the layers. it does give it that that are you ready to rock look. it may have come across anotonia carlos jobim - 'girl from ipanema' otherwise.
chunter: Thanks nev. Regrettably I'm a Technical Author and some things stick out like a sore thumb for me. Did you mean AntoniO (not Antonia) Carlos Jobim? Or is there a hottie out there that I don't know about?

(Actually I didn't know about Antonio either - I had to look it up on Google to see what the heck you were talking about!)

even if antonia was a hottie i think she would have hairy legs. colin one thing i have been all too guilty of since joining shutterchance is posting before re-reading my typing. sorry. antonio is exactly right. girl from ipanema is the brunt of many lift music jokes i know but if you like latin jazz then definitely check out joao gilberto and stan getz with astrud gilberto on vocals. corcorvada on that album is sweet too. if not pick something that ROOCCCKKS.
chunter: Me too, clicking before checking typing; very bad of me, which is why I don't often point out errors (unless jokingly and I think you can take it!).

Latin jazz - OK, but I'm more Dire Straits and Pink Floyd, much to the chagrin of Mrs. H. Don't mind a bit of Ludovico Einaudi and Norah Jones either. Quite diverse really. It's a case of I don't know what it is but I know if I like it.

ah dire straits. i won't overload your post with music mempories but the brothers in arms concert was the first huge concert i went to see in cairns north queensland. normally bands wouldn't go that far north. it absolutely poured. they were sweeping the water from the grand piano. admirably they continued to play with equipment blowing up everywhere. i don't seem to receive email replies when i comment on ors. blogs. do you experience this.
chunter: What's ors.blogs - short for others' blogs, maybe? If so, yes and no. Some reply and some don't. It doesn't bother me too much if I get no replies. I state in my 'about me' that I don't leave comments just to get them back - that's for Flickr.com. I'm happy to leave constructively critical comments anywhere and everywhere (if photographers can be bothered to introduce their images) using 'visit a random photoblog', but to help them on their way, not just so they'll visit mine. Of course it's always nice when people let you know if your comments help or not.

This is a great and imaginative treatment you've applied to this shot Colin.

I like all of the music you listed Colin, but I also like Nev's Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto stuff too, one of my all time fave albums. I've got it on CD & vinyl and blow me down I can't find either of them to tell you my favourite track.
chunter: That's 'cos your wife hates it and she's either buried it or thrown it away.

Thanks for your comment. 'Imaginative treatment' was, in all honesty, to hide the fact that it was a poor quality shot in the first place. I have another somethng like it straigt from the camera from one of my wedding shoots. Dressed up a little it looks as if I intended it.

colin i'm not concerned about not getting responses it is just that when someone does respond i don't receive the responses by email. i can never keep track of who i've assisted and may want some followup.
chunter: Ah, I see. It's not as simple as editing your preferences, is it, where there's an entry to accept email alerts? If it's not that, then I'm out of my depth and a line to The Maven, (Duane Bong), might be in order. Check out your preferences first, though.
