Jeffrey M. Smith 12/30/2011 5:55:53 AM

Been almost 20 years since I have visited "Down Under" You have done GREAT justice to this instrument! The definition is lifelike, along with the framoing, comp lighting, and EXCEPTIONAL DoF, all makes for a winning shot! Its almost as if you took the time to "Paint the organ with light in order to get such a uniform pic.
VERY Well Done Indeed and deserved of "GOLD"
