Re: On a night like this, there are no bad photos

Piet, I am at a loss to understand what is going on. These photos are from a year ago. Why are they showing up how? Matt LOL - I think a lot of us use "active" to see what is going on. Ed Davis was looking through old stuff and he made a comment and that threw your work back into the "hot" pile. Pi...

Re: 'Sweet Hitchhiker' (composite)

very cool - love Duck's advise and "todo" image - particularly about the tangent areas - perhaps kill the Service word. Also tempted to further color down the greens. I like what you did here.
