    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/jameslagden] Yeah I liked the B&W version. Colour is ok, but it works well in b&w.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/steves_life] No probs :) Hope you got a lot out of it.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/spelio] Bribie is a nice spot, although a lot more populated than it used to be.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/bradchiplin] Every thing's better with a bird! Strong composition, Dave. The defined texture of the wood contrasts beautifully against the smoothed out DoF. Even the bird's body is parallel with the plane of the trunk. Well shot.

    thank you so much for your thoughts! I'm sure Japan is grateful for all the help Australia has extended to her!
    take care now!
