Welcome back, Ania!

Immeasurable thanks for the fantastic response to yesterday's upload, and in particular to Lynne Joyce, Trevor (TrevBatWCC), Gary (gary_d) and Tony (tony64) whose User Awards I shall treasure.

Yes I saw this and liked it.

Superb. The DOF is spot on and the loss of the end of the message is perfectly done leaving the viewer with questions.
I like pictures which leave me asking questions.Grin

The person who this is intended for will understand the message in whole. A strange way of showing undying love.

A poignant message, and I think the lens-baby treatment really works for it.

I got myself a Sony Nex camera Bill,as I can use my old Minolta manual focus lenses on it.It will be shots such as this I will be after using my 58mm f1.2 lens for a limited depth of field.And they will probably be in mono too !!
Well spotted,and a little lesson for me here to keep my eyes open other than for rust !!
