Inspired by Alistair


When Digiphotology posted his image of the Liverpool Mural Project I knew I would eventually have to take some pictures of it, so a sunny afternoon and a trip into Liverpool provided the occasion. I know this is a direct rip-off of Alistair's image but I hope he will forgive me, Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery after all. The other reason I have posted this is that it is also my first attempt at stitching together a number of images in Photoshop and I am reasonably pleased with the result although it will not stand up to close scrutiny, need a bit more practice perhaps

John, Paul, George, Ringo and the other two:

The Beatles with the two almost Beatles standing in the wings. Stuart Sutcliffe was a bass player for two years and is sometimes known as the Fifth Beatle. He died early on in Hamburg in Germany whilst studying at the Hamburg College of Art. Pete Best was the original drummer who was replaced by Ringo Starr on the 16th August 1962'

Further details of the Liverpool Mural Project may be found here, I now have the challenge of finding the second mural that has been produced.

Looks pretty good to me Les. Being on a brick wall is,I guess, rather unforgiving.
Les Auld: Thanks Bill, but I think I will always see the bits that are not quite right.

It's only the hedge in the foreground that gives it away - the mural looks fine to me. It's a good subject for a panoramic crop.

Les Auld: Panoramic is the only way for this Ingrid, thanks for the comment.
You have done well Les, nothing wrong with the stitching as far as I can see.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian but I will always see the bad bits.
