Wife was at work tonight so had some hours to kill. Here are my 'Enhanced' photo entries, I wasn't much of a fan for this category but I had a lot of fun playing around with editors. I have edited all my images at 1024x768 and then shrunk them to 66% for posting so the text is not quite as clear as I would like.

First image is a LE Panoz Esperante GTR1. I have posted something like this before but have changed it quite a bit;

Posted Image

This is one of my favorite cars, Fly's Ford Capri;

Posted Image

Ok, this one is way out there but kinda looks funky. The car is a MRRC Toyota;

Posted Image

Had a bit of fun with this one, LE cars racing through a construction site;

Posted Image

Hope you like them.

Cheers Manic B)

They are awesome Manic.

What type of editing program do you have?

I don't know which one is my favorite but for orginality the MRRC Toyota one wins hands down. I love it!!!

They are going to be hard to beat.

Well done Manic.

Thanks Dave, I had a stack of fun playing around with the photo editor which BTW is Photoshop 7. I'm not sure how it stacks up to Corel Draw but it's pretty easy to use as I did all the submitted image enhancements in 3 hours.

Cheers Manic :o

Nice bike pic Jamie, looks like a little extra down-force on that bike. Are you still a big fan of the bikes? hmcsat and I had so much trouble getting them to go around the track we threw in the towel. Any improvements post the weights?

Cheers Manic :rolleyes:

Hi Matt,

At the time of that pic (ages ago) I had added the extra magnet and the bikes hung on much better around the track, but the scraping noise as they went around and the lack of leaning made them look and sound annoying so that one went on Ebay and I just kept a couple of them as shelf queens. I'm not sure how the bikes went with the heavier replacement slide base that Scalextric later supplied the bikes with as I never tried them.

yes i see what you must think, kind of like the 50's and 60's when spectators took their lives in their own hands when they went to a race; at lemans i think they set a record for dead spectators when a car landed in the grand stands. :( appearences can be decieving my track is tiny in comparision to most of my colleagues and cars dont develop enough speed to get airborne into the scenery except by the tech center and it pretty well covered now by wine barrier barrells. :D
