    Don’t blink. Don't even blink. Blink and you’re dead. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away. And DON'T blink.

    (If anyone doesn't get the reference, I'll explain later).

    Din, ding, ding! The actual title of the episode was "Blink". My favorite Doctor Who episode of all time.

    Yep, nice contrast. But, if criticism is still allowed - for my taste, these are too centered, have a too shallow depth of field - and I hate watermarks. Why do so many still put watermarks on all photos? It's not like Apple will steal them and won't pay you money for it. (Oops - had I just been sarcastic? No, seriously, they usually pay you after you say you'll sue them otherwise ;)).

    Thanks Dave. Thanks for the comments Poki. The shallow DOF was deliberate. Watermarks are just a personal touch. Some use them, some don't. I'm under no illusion that they will keep someone unscrupulous from stumbling on the photos and grabbing them for their own purpose, although the likelyhood of that is remote, IMO. It is just my way of doing things.
