Hi Samar

I'm glad you like the image. I'm afraid though that I can't let you have the file in psd or any other format for obvious reasons.

I'm conscious that the ePHOTOzine community is non commercial. Suffice to say therefore that if you would like a canvas or print then the best thing to do is e mail me via my website and I can let you have a quote.

Hope that helps.Smile
