Ghostly knight

2/52 for the group T189ers weekly alphabet challenge

 

This week's theme was: A is for Apparition

 

This was quite challenging, especially as I had an essay deadline looming and thus less time for photography than usual.

 

I had thought of playing with a long exposure in the woods, but I didn't have the time or energy and the weather was wet and dreary. So on the way to the Welsh class, I grabbed this quick shot of the Owain Glyndwr statue in Corwen and tried to make it look like a ghostly knight.

 

I'm not entirely happy with some of the cloning and a better starting image would have made things easier, but I think the basic principle has worked.
