My that week flew by...Thursday Challenge time again!!  This week we are to offer something with the inclusion of the colour RED.

That said, it is also Last Thursday of the month and YAM has her own little theme today of using an image that has been 'doctored' in some way; creativity it's called...  Additionally, in line with the MENO blog's tour of Dunoon (start back here if you missed that!), it has to be a shot from that fair town.

Guess what?  I actually had a shot which fit the bill exactly on all three counts!!!

Spotted these chimney pots on a house up from the shore-front and couldn't resist them. Amongst a sea of standard crockpot stacks, these were actually a rather vibrant pink over the dark grey slate roof. WLPG'd it by adjusting the highlights all the way down, then upping the contrast a bit and sliding the colour tone all the way to green.

(As an aside, the name stamp was in green when I saved it.  I have NOOO idea how it turned red after uploading...??!!)

It is not the sharpest image partly because I did not carry my monopod with me and the 'Nik' on full 26x optical lens extension - was braced on a fence, but at that length even breathing is going to affect the result!!
