Reinardina....I know we have had a few sparing matches and don't always see eye to eye, but I must say.......your photography has improved dramatically and I take my hat off to you. Well done and keep it up. I'm really 'seeing' your work and think you have a good eye for what works really well. U R a dark horse.

Thank you Chris.
I'm still learning, trying things out and experimenting all the time. Often getting it very wrong. But when I realise that something isn't right, the images won't leave my hard drive, so no one knows about them, giving the impression I'm much better than I am!

And about my 'good eye;' I literally have distorted vision, I see everything round a blind spot, which means I do not see straight lines, they're all bent. Maybe seeing things differently helps?

And yes, I am a very dark horse, lurking in the shadows, waiting to pounce!
