    Sorry, Jude, forgot to add, this is a superb composition.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Ark. Just a bit of fun 😊

  2. BeckyB says:

    ooh you are getting good at playing

    1. Heyjude says:

      Harder than I thought, as I couldn’t quite get the composition right.

      1. BeckyB says:

        Well I’m in awe of what you’ve created 😊

  3. Dina says:

    Very arty and so much good fun. Love this one, Jude!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Dina. It was your swirls that made me think about doing something with these two photos.

      1. Dina says:

        That’s lovely. We had our last Zoom meeting with the camera club yesterday and we had all made Christmas card. Many snow photos, I was the only one who dared put an overlay with snow on my images. 😉

    I thought it was ‘one’ picture at first glance and thought it was breathtaking and a very lucky find. Now I know how it was made, it is still powerful.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Just goes to show that what you see may not be real.

  5. Su Leslie says:

    Beautifully done Jude. The lighthouse looks so like the one on the Manukau Heads; the surrounding plants look like flax and manuka. Do you know if it is?

    1. Heyjude says:

      It was from Pauline in the Gold Coast. I think if you click on the link it takes you to her post where she may tell you where the lighthouse is.

      1. Su Leslie says:

        Thanks Jude. I read Pauline’s name in your post but didn’t click on the link — and didn’t make the connection. I’ve just checked now and it is the Manukau Heads lighthouse 🙂

    2. pommepal says:

      Yes you’ve got it Su. Manukau heads it is…

      1. Su Leslie says:

        Yay. I love the Awhitu Peninsula, and the lighthouse in particular. I had a job once supervising research on Manukau Harbour beaches, and trips up to the bays at the Heads were my favourite ways to spend the day.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Sounds like a fab job to have!

        2. Su Leslie says:

          It was! A summer job while I was doing my Masters. The research was funded by the Harbour Board, and it even came with a car. I also covered for some of the researchers and surveyed a few of the really quiet beaches. Basically I got paid to drive around, and go to the beach. Probably the best job I ever had.

        3. Heyjude says:

          If only all jobs could be like that!

        4. Su Leslie says:

          Wouldn’t that be wonderful.

        5. pommepal says:

          What a great job that was it is a lovely area. My son lives near Waiuku, so we always drive out there when we visit

        6. Su Leslie says:

          It is a beautiful area, and I was totally unaware of it. Score I had the research job. Which was probably the best job I’ve ever had.

      2. Heyjude says:

        What did you think of the blend? And has the latest outbreak in Sydney interfered with your plans?

        1. pommepal says:

          The blend looked very natural, well done. Sydney plans are all cancelled as of today…☹️

        2. Heyjude says:

          Oh, no. I thought they might have to be, unless you were already away. Are your borders closed again?

        3. pommepal says:

          Not yet but could at any time, so not worth the risk of being caught down there. Now planning a quiet few days enjoying our garden and art. Had torrential rain so no need to water the garden, it can look after itself, as I had planned it if we were going away…🌺🌸🥂🎨🤗 hope your Christmas is a peaceful one

        4. Heyjude says:

          And yours PP. Love to Jack too. No point complaining about these matters. We just have to hope there will be better times ahead.

  6. Wow, I think that is very cool! Photography is so awesome!

  7. Mabel Kwong says:

    This is so beautifully done. Blended seamlessly and it looks like the images were meant to be together. Great work. If you didn’t say it was two photos I thought you’d saw a lovely view of a girl and lighthouse at the beach… It did look like a lovely view there in the first place 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you Mabel, just goes to show how photos can be manipulated.
