Tom, I think it's fantastic - exactly what I was thinking!!  I'm actually quite serious - it'd be extremely experimental!! If I could get some built in weights or something to add a bit more "heftiness" and then made a bowsprit that sort of moulded into the body of the topper so it wouldn't just snap off!! If I made the mast maybe shorter then it wouldn't get very overpowered - and I could custom make the sails!!

Sorry....I didn't take a breath then cos it was all off the top of my head!!

Has anybody ever tried anything like this??! (I really think this would be so fun, honest)!

It is a stupid idea.

So get on and do it so everyone who watches can have a good laugh.

(adding weights & "Heftiness" may not be the best plan to acieve lift off though...)

 Sorry Tom, never meant to be nasty... I was only making a comment that your Photoshop creation wasn't as stunning as your usual images

Besides, being 18 isn't an excuse - you've got talent and you're stuck with it  Good you've discovered it so early.

Sorry again

No worries BNS i was only kidding! Jack sparrow, thats amazing, you will have to give me a photoshop lesson, i managed to select the topper perfectly but it wouldn't let me mover it over the other images so i gave up and used a combination of photoshop and paint!

oh no you have given away my secret! Saying that I hardly ever use editing on my photos, the photos you see are the photos I have taken, I only ever use a small bit of sharpening and level the horizons sometimes thats all i promise!
