    Look !! His is like mine !!

    I recently visited the Sydney "Sculptures by the Sea" exhibition and this was one of those funny little moments that can be captured with a small telephoto lens.

    I think the title is appropriate.

    Interesting bit of manipulation.

    As mentioned, the wheely bin is a give-away as is the different coloured grass and the shadow under the sculpture.

    Thanks everyone for viewing and commenting.

    Seabee and Duane Pipe,
    Don't be confused because you are right in both of your comments, 1./ the kids are small and 2/. the wheelie bin is big. (120 liter I believe.)

    Trublubiker,
    The only manipulation of the original photo is a cropp and I cloned out the adults.

    Here is a copy of the original shot straight out of the camera.
    I considered cloning out the wheelie bin but was too lazy, I'll give it a try now because it will improve the shot and stop confusion.

    It was just one of those precious moments.

    LOL............thanks Darey........it's almost like a tilt shift pic.
    When you look at the Bin.....the wheels are rather small in comparison....optical illusions all over the place in this one.

    Still think it's funny and well captured

    Well there you go, wrong , again !

    I guess the darker grass is where people haven't walked, huh?

    Cheers

    Thanks guys,
    You gave me the kick in the butt I needed and I cloned out the wheelie bin.
    I hope this looks better.

    the longer grass around the sculpture is due to rain falling in said red guy and dripping to the ground. that area not only gets no foot traffic but also more water.

    cool effect. had me fooled with the mini ppl and huge wheelie bin.
