Back despite popular demand! :D

Here's the deal: I hoked-up the attached image; the flamingo pond in the background was from another photo. And the bomb was a present from a Road Runner cartoon. Onnnnly kidding-I modeled the bomb, rendered it, and used Dissolve paint mode in PS to light the fuse.

Your challenge is to change the background to something less fanciful, and you might want to replace the bomb with something else; a sack of potatos, a block of ice, you name it. Rendered models or photos are fair game.

This is a test of your image editing skills, so let's go for it!

My Best,
Gare

Nice one nitro! I wonder how many people know the original punk polka band? :D

I think it was in the early eighties sometime that I sorta slid from Flaco Jimenez and Lydia Mendoza into Brave Combo. Mind boggling! [confused] ;)

Yep, Flaming Pear's Glitterato it is. You just can't beat Flaming Pear's fun/useful per dollar ratio!

The earth comes from a set of rendered globe shots which I purchased back in the '90s sometime. You might not be surprised that they were called GlobeShots. Actually they still are called GlobeShots! I just Googled them and...

I've ended up using them so many times that I've really gotten my $'s worth. ;)

Thanks all, In my youth there was only one TV in the house, so if your parents are watching Lawrence Welk, Well you come to enjoy the music.
Gare: If your Bro is a musician he'll really get a blast out of it :D
Welles: Your image reminds me of an gospel tune... He's got the whole world in his hands...
Stanislav: Looks like the other three guys are upset that he snatched the beer :}

Wow, it's been awhile since I've had time to be a part of the festivities. Here is a little different approach. . .
