...the ghost train
One of Blackpool's oldest rides, and still up there with the best, it's been around as long as I can remember, this shot is taken from outside the ride, looking up at the enormous grinning skeleton that can be seen from quite a distance away, not too much after effects here surprisingly, just a little lighting effect and conversion to blue monochrome, the eyes are very real and untouched!

Excellent choice of colour and composition it works really well one of the more unusual "non-nature" shots Ive seen on TE.
Thanks for sharing.

Unusual and very original idea Mike! Good framing and well executed.

Cette photo nous rappelle une affiche de cinéma "film d'horreur et d'épouvante".
Belle prise de vue bien structurée.

First your creepy shopwindow doll, now this ghostly image... Brittish Horror and suspence :))
Great shot, unusual colors, creepy mood. I think that your last several photo's are substantially better than the rest of your portfolio. Looking at this photo and 'Through a glass darkly ', you haven't sold your soul for it, i hope?

A great image. The unique lighting makes it look unreal, but that adds all to the impact.

Hi Mike.. I don't know how I've been missing this one, but wow. The lighting, clouds and the contrived horror works well and give the overall effect a well balanced sense. So much so that at first glance I thought it to be a drawn image. I like this a lot.
