First, my apologies to the pope.
And perhaps to Evil Knievel too.
But I couldn't resist!

I used the photo of Our Lady Before Tyn Church (copyright Benny Lo) from Danny Raphael's mini challenge #16 in the forum photo art section.

I made the left tower larger, then used transform-->distort to change the angle of view so the viewer is more "in the action." I also distorted the bike angle to match. Last I copied the top of the small spire and put it on a new layer above the cycle to make it look like he came from behind it.

Hi! Phyllis
Not up to your usual high standard, you did this too quick and did not pay attention to detail, especially on and around the large spire.

Nick: "Not up to your usual high standard, you did this too quick and did not pay attention to detail, especially on and around the large spire."

Oh, I paid attention to detail...there just wasn't much there. I hand-cleaned up the ragged edges and smart-blurred out as many pixel blotches as I could, but, as Darkstar pointed out, the church image was of low res and therefore pretty poor quality, especially when I enlarged it.

But what the heck...this one was mainly for the idea, and Danny's church pic gave me that idea, so it seemed right to use it. I don't go into every challenge with the intent to create a masterpiece...sometimes it's just for the fun of it!

Looks like the Pope has gotten his health back. That's really cute.

Love it Phyllis!-- pity they didn't have that on posters for the Youth Day in Toronto. I'm sure his holiness would have smiled.
