    Thank you Midzing, Alterdillusions and RLHall.

    I hope you all still like this image: I reloaded a much cleaner version today (6:55 PM 9-March-2008) which highlights the real colours.

    great colour in the debris – just noticed that if go in lower and use the wood knot as an eye, looks like swordfish (I’ll keep taking the pills)

  • Haha, yeah, I see the swordfish now. Thanks for commenting Dave

    Beautiful textures,colors and lines..

  • Thanks MicMac. Yes, it does look great framed. If nobody else does, I plan to buy both this and its sister shot framed for my exhibition later this year. (Still being organised!)
