Submarine Christmas Photoshopping Contest

Just a reminder -- entries for The Sub Report's Submarine Christmas Photoshop Contest are due by 2359 tonight (Thursday the 14th). Here's the page with the entries that have come in so far. It's a great chance to have some fun and maybe win a prize.

You don't need any fancy software to do a good photoshop; I just use the Microsoft Picture It! that came with my computer, and if you don't have that, Eric has a link to some freeware. For example, I just put together this admittedly lame "Christmas Tree on the RPCP" entry in about five minutes:

For good results, you might want to spend a little more time than I did. It's fun for the whole family!

Isn't that confidential, at least?

Other anon: you've taken the bait on this one. Clearly, BH is aware of classification issues...and this pic doesn't have any. Especially not when it's sitting in a museum for all to see. I'll leave the detailed explanation to BubbleHead.

BTW, a year or so ago I saw a similar shot posted, of all places, on the door of the school nurse at my daughter's school. It was labeled something to the effect of "an early concept IBM computer." I took that bait and attempted to explain the realities of what it really was to the school nurse, with all the success of one trying to speak to a goldfish. I've no doubt that -- because she read it in a magazine somewhere -- to this day, to her, it's still a computer. Had she been cuter, I'd have spent more time and been more persistent.
