    My entries are in. But when I tried to post, the image came up as a tiny blue square with a question mark in it. I don't remember taking photos of question marks.

    So I posted the links instead.

    Well, they would certainly qualify, if you had. :D

    Only if they were man-made question marks!

    I think I found the problem. I Brian mentions on the "Post a photo of yourself" thread that he can help resize photos so they can be posted. The whole Italy trip, I kept my camera on the largest possible photo size, so I didn't miss any details. In three weeks, I chewed through about 8G of memory cards.

    My big photos must be too big for the forum.

    Lovely pics, David. You can resize photos on photobucket, if you have it, then they give you a handy link to post on forums so your pictures show.

    Just to let everyone know, Tiffany's pictures got caught by the automatic software. I've sorted it out and they are both there in their glory now.

    The name's familiar. I'm gonna Google her. (I'm thinking I've seen some of her stuff somewhere before.)

    You probably have, she lives in Devon, I've been to her home. She has had her horses at Saltram & The Eden Project & other places too. I wish I could afford one.

    Ah yeah, might've seen something at the Eden Project then. Also fancy I've seen it at gardening shows.

    Just curious; is any element of Photoshopping allowed in this? I don't mean MAKING the image in PS of course.

    Yep. I usually correct the exposure in my pics. I've done a colour splash before and I know Cul has too.

    I have a fine old fiddle with various things in Photobucket before I post. Saturation, exposure, contrast, maybe throw on a fancy frame...
