TY Crafty. I don't think we presume to censor classical masters painters like Jean Leon Gerome. That is just bad form. There is nothing lewd here and nothing a 4 year old child can't see in a museum or on prime time PBS. I shouldn't even have to explain that.
Hitspinner, this is so BEAUTIFUL, you're tops. Congrats on the gold.
Thank you Doc, Andrew, Hobbit, Luciano and Crafty.
Congrads on the Gold Cup, always on top and that's money in the bank, excellent
HoHouse. Yeppers. I do my best to entertain you guys, TY.
Europe together succeed another XXI century great project ... and only Russia is out of European integration and stays a barrel of oil, a country with a third level economy (even not second). Oil prices go down and Russia goes down too. Russian currency, ruble, is collapsing. What's next. History is repeating itself but in a different dimension. Starvation of population, a new revolution and new "Putin" or "Yeltsin" as a result. 20 years ago after the end of the communism, it missed its chance to integrate into the world of free economy like a normal partner and become a civilized country.

How many of you can and like to ride horses? While many of us do it for fun, it takes a lot of stamina, time, and training to become a professional jockey. Racing an expensive horse in the Kentucky Derby is like racing a Ferrari on Formula 1 - you have to become one of the very few "chosen ones" to have this privilege.
Photoshop this image of a jockey flying his horse any way you wish. This is a speed contest with slightly more that 24 hours for submissions.
This Saturday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Penguins are one of the very few birds (along with ostrich, emu, cassowary, rhea and kiwi) that can not actually fly. Penguin ancestors were flying birds, but as the climate in Antarctica became colder the pre-penguins evolved into fatter, heavier, and rounder birds and it became harder and harder to fly with such bodies. Eventually they "gave up" the flight and developed that distinctive walk on their short but strong legs, swaying their fat rounded bodies as they walk. But as today's picture shows us, even if penguins can fly no more, doesn't mean they should stop trying.
Photoshop this photo of a penguin jumping out of water in Antarctica any way you wish. Some examples - show how this penguin can fly, place it into some non-Arctic environment, etc.
Many thanks to Christopher Michel for providing the source photo.
Photoshop this Indian flying fox image (click to download) any way you wish. Some examples are: dressing up this Indian flying fox, making the flying fox perform some stunts, putting the Indian flying fox into some unusual environment, using this flying fox image in advertisements, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.

Besides the so called "flying fish", many ordinary fish species are known to "fly" in extreme conditions. During a recent canoe and kayak solo race in Kansas, a 30-pound Asian silver carp jumped from the water and hit the race leader, Brad Pennington, in the head, causing him to leave the race because of "the pounding headache caused by the flying carp".
Peddington is a practicing lawyer. He is considering suing the fish.
Construct new species of flying fish by merging any fish with any bird.
This Friday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images.
Photoshop this flying horse image (click to download) any way you wish.
Some examples are - changing the flying horse for some other flying objects, making the little boy perform some stunts, designing a poster with this flying horse image, putting the horse or the boy into some new environment, using this flying horse image in advertisements, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
