Would appreciate your opinions.

Isn't that a pinecone not an acorn? Smile

I'm with you on being unsure about the radial blur in the background. I think perhaps if you did it with less blur? My rule of thumb with effects is if you're in doubt it probably isn't working.

I think you can go in and edit your title in the pull down menu under Options.

Anyway, doesn't matter what you call it - we can see what it is.

Nicely photographed showing good detail and I do like the blur that you've added around the edges.

Oh Anne thanks for the tip re: being able to change the title of the shot...............I've changed it now - I'm glad I only looked like a complete "numpty" for a few hours!!

Thanks for your comments.
