WoWZer Ding, ding, ding we have a winner first time out. (and a favorite for my folder) I just emailed Ken and told him you don't need any help. You do fine my dear! This is just stunning!!! The DOF just goes on and on until you can't see any further as your own eyes would loose the scene. The tonal definition is insanely great! and the light...WoW is all I can say. I think you should be teaching at BP not submitting. (just because you're to much competition!! LOLOL No I mean it!)

Phil and I trust that all is well with you and Barry up there on the Gold Coast, as it is with us down here near beautiful Lake Macquarie!! :o) We are (generally!) having lovely winter weather at the moment!! How about you fellas? - lol!! ;o)

Not bad for a first attempt at HDR :-). Although, it isn't the HDR that does it here, but the comp. Great eye. Congratulations.
