Hi K, all fine here, thanks for asking, a bit sick of the holidays, nothing going on, everyone is very crabby, I suppose they are bored, I am taking some nice shots and also trying to decide what camera to buy next year , either the Nikon D70 or the Canon 300D, think I will go for the Canon as it is cheaper and the Nikon is too big for me, I picked one up yesterday and it looked funny in my small hands...hope you are well to, thanks for the intelligent comments too.

Hi K,

Like the idea and the image works well with the colours youve selected, but I think I'd prefer it if there was more of your mouth, and the odd stray hair was removed.

Just relooked at it again, and wonder if there should also be a little more detail down the side of your nose to help remove the button nose effect?

Still, its just as well a good picture hasnt got to be 100% to be recognised as a goodun.

Happy new Year

Regards
