At long last I can tell you something that I have known since November. Do you remember this:- posted by Dave Rosser on 5th. August 2005 and my answer of Well I have won 1st Prize in the Creative Digital Catagory. I am in some very illustrious company like Andy Rouse-Jari Peltomaki from Finland and Bence Mate from Hungary. There were over 6000 entries in all, so I am very pleased to have done so well. My prize is £700 ($1200) of Olympus Equipment, which I think is the E500 and 2 lenses but this has yet to be confirmed. Not sure what to do with it as yet. I will probably advertise it on ebay and buy something else, but that remains to be seen. I had hoped to send you the link to all the pictures, but it does not seem to be available at the moment. This is a great shame as I think that the judges got the best picture and top prize of £1500, ( $2600) wrong. Still that is only my opinion. The 3 images below are, in part, how I arrived at the final image that was entitled. 'Magpie at Warp Factor 10.' Original Image Very heavy crop. Processed through Photoshop CS with such applications as 'Poster Edges- Radial Blur etc. Whose a clever boy then? The annoying thing is that I have forgotten one of the applications that I used and I have not been able to reproduce it again That the problem with being a genius. One good idea, and that is your lot for the rest of your life!! Happy New Year. Bob F.
