Award Shortlist   

Blonde 2.

By Mollycat
First and foremost I must thank so many of you for your kind thoughts, wishes and PM's about yesterdays hospital visit. Not the
best of days, however the results where good, I have Diverticular Disease ( new one to me as well ), whereby the gut wall
deteriates, wear and tear, and in rare cases, mine, bleeding can occur. No cure,but a a high fibre diet and medication. I can cope with that. When you consider its only a year since I joined ePz, I have acquired a family of friends, people I never knew existed, for which I can truly say thank you to each and everyone one for being there for me.

Secondly another go at ' Blonde '. Thank you for all your help and constructive criticisms, I 've taken on board many of your
suggestions, and this is the result. Hope its an improvement. Sure you'll tell me one way or the other.GrinGrin

Morning Peter, glad you are ok. My friend has a similar problem and the change in diet has helped immensely, she feels 100% better most of the time.

This is a good shot to begin with and this version definitely works better than yesterday's.

13 Aug 2014 6:39AM
Glad to hear your can control it all now you know
Much prefer this version.....but i would crop it even more so the blonde lass is the feature on the left side
No other table to be seen.

Glad your visit to the hospital went well, always a relief when it's all over, sure you will manage fine with the diet Peter.

As for your image, this is much better and I agree perhaps a bit more of a crop, as least we are all learning with you.

You have done brilliantly now; Blondie looks good! I like this crop.
(I had a touch of D.D. I few years ago as I think nuts irritate it; no special diet but try not to eat so many nuts!!)

Glad to hear everything went well for your colonoscopy, Peter Smile When I had this examination in June I too was told I had Diverticular Disease, or Sigmoid Diverticular Disease as it said on the report I was given, and told it's nothing serious, but just general wear & tear due to getting old! Wink I wasn't told to stick to any special diet or have any medication for it though.
Anyway, this version is much better, with more of lady - and her legs - in focus! The blend between sharp and blur is much less noticeable, and works much better Smile
Take care,
Trev Smile
