Award Shortlist   


By starstriders
I'm not sure if this is really in the right category or not. I couldn't decide on which fitted it best!

Seeing as this is my hand this photo wasn't technically taken by me but it was my set up. My Mum took the photo whilst I checked the results, made adjustments and so forth to retake it again.

It was taken at Batsford Arboretum, Gloucestershire. Lovely place although we went on a drizzly day. The statue was a very large buddha in the Japanese garden.


All comments and criticism encouraged.
