As a picture it is excellent. It could be ominous if you were a turkey and it was near christmas.

liam beattie: hi louis

indeed yes...this kinda made me think of those horror movies. You know the type where the car breaks down and a newly wed couple has to spend the weekend in a town where the locals seem a tad askew. This would be the scene on the gate as the couple enters the Motel
Hope the hatchet is well and truly buried. richard
liam beattie: last time i checked it was. Ta Richard smile
I´m too scared to not like it.
liam beattie: ha hope you didn't see this late at night after watching texas chainsaw massacre or similar?!

what a superb image that is Liam, and top marks for even thinking it up never mind the execution of itsmile
liam beattie: was a total fluke. I needed to get the axe off the floor where the 15 month old was eyeing it with intent. Then the next morning the weather played ball. Sometimes luck is the best stylist smile
Love the use of shadows - gives it an artistic scary feel! I love it.
liam beattie: cheers craig...exactly the intended effect.
