You know, the more I look at that pic the more I find to like about it. By textbook standards maybe it is 'drowned in light', but if you had done that intentionally it would be art and quite beautiful.

I've no idea what you're talking about   ;)

Especially as 'quote' deleted your post Paul. Lord knows how that happened. Sorry  :uglystupid2:

Oh, I get it, you were deleting it at the same time I was trying to reply. :legit:
