Thanks to all who took part in last week's playing card challenge. This week, as the weather gets colder here in the North, I thought we might go somewhere warm, very warm! So here we have a sandy desert, what will you make with it?

 

The “rules”:

  • Anything goes, as long as it meets the forum rules on decency, copyright etc.
  • Anyone, and everyone, is welcome to have a go, whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert.
  • There are no prizes apart from the chance to practice, show off, or bring a bit of humour and fun. Don't be shy, join in and have a go!

 

To download the image below at 3840 x 2160 pixels, with an embedded ICC colour profile (sRGB), hover over the image and click on the circle with the arrows at the top right. Then, when the image opens in its own window, right click and choose “Save Image As/Save Target As” (or similar depending on your browser).

When posting back your image – please use the Blue reply button in this first post. If posting a comment on someone else’s entry then please use the grey reply button next to their image post.

 

Have fun.

 

Dave

Dean, that will be the Nile river just behind that line of trees I'm thinking, and that grassy bank on the left will be an ittigation ditch.  If Dave had allowed us to use more pixels, we'd have been able to see the donkey on a stick pumping water out of the river and into the ditch.

I was thinking about what the shadow areas were - maybe remnants of a dust storm.

Jacob - you may need to add to you 'As Always' message to include 'Don't use Chrome to view my image'. 🙂

Thank you for the alert, Dean. Is there no way to follow (such) a link with Chrome?

There is no link when using Chrome when you put it on your own website.

Jane, are you saying that there is none of these options when RightClicking in Chrome?

 

Open Link in New (whatever) or View Image for direct access, or Copy Link Location or Copy Image Location for indirect access.

 

And if that is the case, is that a general Chrome non feature set, or limited to me/mine (I know that the inserted images are treated as just another part of the page)?

Hi Jacob - In Chrome, the image doesn't show and there is nothing to click. You could create a hyperlink like:
For Chrome viewers, click here.

As I finally (believe I) understand it now, Dean, with Chrome you are just looking at an empty post, with or without the Click/RightClick text. I guess you have had to find it in the Page Source.

 

That is far worse than I thought. I hope the addition above is meaningful.

 

Thank you very much.

Rather than providing links to click which, quite rightly, many will not do, why not just use the forum image widget to embed the picture in the post and make it easy for all viewers?

Do we see an oasis or is it another mirage?

 

“Dan can't you see that big green tree where the waters runnin' free

And it's waiting there for me and you? Water, cool water.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha2t7ajfyUw 

 

written by: Bob Nolan, 1936

also recorded by: Roy Rogers, Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell, Burl Ives, Bob Dylan

I'll be singing that all night now Jane. The horse and rider fit well in the scene.

Me too!

 

I first learned this song when I was six, then there was a gap until I listened again a decade or so ago and realized he and Dan never found the water. 😔
