'Superb & artistic DA Image Take,' Sandy.

~ Peter
A very nice created image. The border does not have a tick in that box for me. I suggest a very light brown. Hope you take this a constructed criticism. Again your subject creativeness stands out. Well done. WesternRed.

They always come out for Christmas, or so it seems.

A well composed shot. I don't know whether it's the strange quality of the light at the time or something in your processing, but there's an unusual effect here. I like it a lot.

Like Dougie I associate dates with Xmas. My parents used to get a hamper at Xmas, & there was always a box of dates in it.

Love your processing of this one. Brings out the detail beautifully. I love to eat dates, but I've never seen them growing.

As this appears to be pretty much as shot Sandy, it really is incredible, the comments above imply they think you've manipulated it somehow, but you usually say if that is the case.
