As a first KF shot I can imagine your pleasure and why not indeed it is a beauty Geoff - would like to see one myself seems from our local NR newsletter a lot of birds including the kingy were washed out this year with all that rain but next year maybe!

A great sparkle within this image, wonderful!

yes, of course you would notice the wear and tear on the piano--- It was given to our son-in law-by his childhood piano teacher--- well taken care of as an instrument, not as furniture-- great choice for a young and growing family of BOYS! I will try to send a full view---

For how much it has been cropped you have still managed to get a good result Geoff. Anyone would be happy with this, especially me.
Weather's still crap in Torquay, will be glad to go home to some sun - lol.

This is a stunner. Been stalking these for the last few months but nothing like this. Will keep going though.
The detail and colour is brilliant, love the background also.
