For a period of 10 years I owned a number of ferrets until finally my back got so bad that I could not look after them properly and I gave the two I had to a ferret sanctuary.

This was an image of Frankie the Ferret who actually was quite an affectionate ferret but for the sake of this week's theme I tried to give her a ghostly feel.

First I used the channel mixer green output with all channels set to 0 and blue output channels with all channels set to 0, brighten/contrast with contrast set to +20 and then the gradient map set to transparent rainbow. I used the flaming pear tool flood with the following settings (view 82, 2, 77, 7 - waves 66, 14, 55, 8 - ripple 74, 47, 15) to try and achieve a ghostly feel to the picture.

Great job creating the menacing and ghostly look here Jan.
Ferrets are still kept by many in the UK - north of Watford of course - where flat caps, whippets, ferrets and t'pub still rule. They are used for catching rabbits and for some reason this pastime is called variously - rabbiting or ferreting - a strange choice of opposites - or should that be apposites?

Excellent processing Jan, she looks quite ferocious. I knew a chap back in Western Australia who has ferrets which he used for Rabbiting. He was a Vietnam vet with facial injuries and could only eat rabbit. He also had 3 whippets which he had trained up for hunting foxes which are an introduced pest in Australia, that side of his operation was very successful and his rabbiting helped many farmers control the hordes,
