You done a better job than me on this one Paul. I actually prefer the colour version for a change, nice and sharp great angle

Thanks guys, very good of you to say that Colin, I actually reffered to yours when I was having difficulty deciding on the crop. And thanks again for the loan of the 50mm. Paul

Interesting crop and composition Paul, plus good use of selective focus. Can I be boring and plump for the colour version too?
