Clever - but also the image is so amazingly slight it is barely there - impressive, unprententious and understated ... (unlike my comment I am afraid!)

Very nice, light and bright which is unusal for a phinhole shot, a good subject and well done

thanks for the nice comments.
thing is, I wasn't too sure about going out to look for a special pinhole subject, so I just did what I usually do on an overcast day, and brought a small flower in from the garden. did a small batch of images with the pinhole just like trying out another lens.
I suppose its sticking with what you know.
(uh oh - one trick pony!)
Of course, it is an expensive digital pinhole camera.
