If you've already taken out a subscription, we have a couple of prizes for you too: one for annual subscribers, the other for one of our lifetime members. If you're an existing annual subscriber and can correctly identify what was unusual about the post-production, email us using the link above for a chance to win a lifetime membership upgrade.
Please don't post your answer as a comment, but do let me know what you think of this shot :)
