    I think this is brilliant, although personally I would have poitioned him on the right hand side to give him space to look in to. great DOF and background

  • Hi Peter — thanks for the suggestion — let me try and see how it looks — I tried the landscape version – but wanted the sky in the shot — so nice of you to make the suggestion — I’ll let you know if I change it — dave

  • Hey Peter – I made a change and I like it better – I didnt really like the blur in the foreground either — thanks again — dave
