Stunning image, I can't remember where, but I have seen an image very similar to your one above, back when I was studying at Art school, I think it was film related or Abstract/surreal, very interesting shot, looks great in B&W, brilliant.

Thanks Margaret, Mary, Kevin, Ken and Steve. I wasn't actually under the table, just the camera was. I held it out at arm's length and used the auto focus. Only one attempt and this is it...rather lucky. Smile

Great Eric. The stark contrast from the almost TV-like appearance of your brother through the glass and the in focus silhouette of his (mad) hair through the hole is very pleasing to the eye.

I'm looking at it and thinking a crop of the white on the right side may improve it (at work, no way of knowing for sure) but then that might mess with the off-centre hole which is balanced as it stands.

Hmm.. I don't know. Either way I like this a lot.

Saved it and played with cropping various margins on either side (hope you don't mind - I deleted it afterwards) but it does leave it looking wrong if cropped. Your original is the best I think Smile
