[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went to a secluded place of Salalah in Oman a few days after my trip in Rome for detox. I woke up very early morning, opened my eyes to a cloudless sky and heared the arabian sea lapping the sandy beach... I was alone. It was very peaceful, a great place for reflection & relaxation...
and then the huge mutant turtle came!
The serene beach was filled w/ terror!

see the WS to see the real size :)

Pp: superimposed my pet's photo, erased, masked, created shadows in color mode, resized, sharpened, & framed, then put the remaining claw layer & flattened.
PS: I also superimposed the birdie photo for contrast of scale :)

Hi Alfred,
Did you say "terror"?! Has that got anything to do with "Freddie"?!
I find this combination very good. The turtle looks great there. The colors, detail and sharpness are perfect.

Haha! Very creative work! I like what you have done here Alfred.Excellent PP, sharpness and colour. TFS. Regards, Pat.

Hi Alfred
Very nice pp works the two pictures works together...

hi! alfred nice view... great work.. well done.. thanks for sharing (",)

i can just say its perfect !!!


very good pic...

Very creative and imaginative.

Great image. TFS Tracey

good pp works here...nice superimposed of the turtle, i like the foot going out of the background...not fiona's foot? :) but i think it would be better if u just clone that birdie over there...great note, i thought i am reading a script :))hahaha..joke..i love ur work..fantastic! -mavic

This is very creative,Al.TFS, Pare.

Nice PP work here, lovely beach scene - it looks like paradise



Outstanding creation, Alfred. very well composed. I like the way you have framed the image. It would make a nice postcard or an appealing graphic for a vacation brochure.

Jervic mentioned a bird in your picture. From your response to his comment, it seems that you are not seeing it. Look on the bottom left corner, in the wet sand. Even though it is small, it should be cloned out. Smile.


wat else can word define this 1!

Hi Freddie. Excellent creative work by superimposing this turtle to make it look very large. Good clarity and colours. TFS. Murray.

Wow that is scary Freddie!!!
Good PP work.
Regards Mark

Nice PP work
Just funny and well done

Excellent job done here and creative immagination, bravo!!!

this is such a great shot with good pp work ! very nice idea to put it on the beach


Interesting idea. very well thought of, composed and presented. Never thought Oman had such beaches....looks beautiful. A job well done.

Hi Fred!

This is a masterpiece

Very creative. and i love how you placed that turtle's foot along the frame.

Almost a Jurassic park sequel.


Gotta go, nee to add this on my fave list :)

This certainly is a very creative shot with the turtle and bird on the beach. My compliments to the post processing work. Well done.

Very clever PP work, Freddie. You've got the angle perfect and I like the foot coming out of the frame to really bring this monstrous creature to life. My only slight criticism is that I think you need to change the lighting on the terrapin to match the light on the beach. If you increased the yellow in the terrapin layer a little to give a more "sunny colour" and put a very subtle spotlight effect shining down on his back I think it would be even more realistic. Great job though!

Best regards from England,


Hi Fred,


What a giant!! I'm not going there, for sure.
-Nice and funny creation.

Without looking at the turtle, it's a wonderful picture, with some deep view in it.


good idea- good quality- I like it

Hello Fred,
Intriguing composition...
Creative work, well done!

excellent shot
nice one
looks good

Nice PP work and good composition - seeing the claw come out of the frame adds something extra to the picture.
Thanks for sharing

hello Fred

intresting result!
nice idea and realisation.
very good visual impact


Excellent work Fred, well photographed and put together :)

Your image is very nice. I like the off-centered turtle with the placement of the beach and trees. I would have removed the dark shadow on the right and upper edges of the photo. I would have cloned out the artifact or cloud on the left edge in the sky. I would also remove the ghost-like appearance between the trees and sky. Also, I suggest lowering the the sky 1/3 since there are no clouds.
