Ship Picture help

Postby Elephant Knight » Sun Nov 30, 2008 9:23 pm

As the title says, I am in need of help for a picture of a ship of mine.

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ElephantKnight/Pirates/hms_relentless.jpg

I would really apreciate it if someone could put the ship on a background that would be proper for this, like an open ocean. If you need a better picture, please tell me.

And please, DON'T tell me to download some free program like the Gimp. If I wanted to, I could, but I don't want to. (And I doubt I could figure out what to do anyways)

Thanks in advance for any help.

EDIT:

I got another picture, hopefully this one isn't so dark:

The picture was a bit dark to work with, but I hope you like it :).

Sorry to double post, but I updated the first post with another (Hopefully better) picture.

Well first I'd say download some random free program, or spend a few hundred bucks on Photoshop, or send your pictures to a professional, but if you don't want to do any of those I guess you can settle for this. It was difficult to tell what was part of the sail or what was part of the wall so I thank you for the challenge, and I hope you appreciate it.
