The reason I have not submitted for some time is only because too much of my effort lately has been trying to teach myself Photoshop in an effort to improve the pictures I already have and then realised that photography is about taking the shot and doing it right.
When I see the very high standard of the beautiful landscapes that are being published in magazines and comparing them to my poor attempts, I shrink from going anywhere near this field of photography and realised that my preference always was remains in candid, macro and unusual studies so I will stick with this direction for now.
I also came to appreciate that ePhotozine offers the wonderful opportunity to have an honest crit, plus advise and modification done by the experts. This, to me is far more valuable than what any Photoshop can teach or do for me.
On the above fence post, I have also cropped the picture down to zoom in on middle two wires wrapped around the post and quite like that as well.
