    Thanks again for all your comments. They keep me inspired and motivated. And in no particular order, - yes, still love the FZ-30, it has its limits but can give you splendid results once you get to know the camera - this is one of the better results I've got out of creative idea + images + PP which I know some feel ranks below "pure" photography. Looking forward to seeing all of you in the year of challenges to come!

    Delightful. It obviously took some thinking and time to create this one. Worth the effort.

    Adirondack Gal, I think that is one great compliment! Gaga may seem all show and hype but behind all the production you sense there is just an Everywoman just trying to be accepted and get along; I'd like to meet her, but just as she happens to be at the moment, whether she be Gaga at the time or her alter ego non-fame personality. I'm not even sure what this image means but I'm sure it says something about me...

    Of course I knew those two were yours. But I voted for them anyway ;-). Nice finishes and well deserved. Also, thanks for the comments on my shot.

    Thanks to all for the votes and especially the comments. This is far from perfect but it was a joy to make.

    One of my all time favourites but I think I'd prefer it without the horizon. I cropped it down to the horizon and, other than a bit of shell it looks better. High in my picks - love it!

    In this picture we see again your skills in composition and PP. In my favorites.

    This is one of my previous favorites. It tells a story. Probably different ones for different viewers. Technically well one, but a bit too symmetrical for my eye. I would have liked the figure angled slightly more to improve the diagonal component. Still one of my favorites.

    Love the concept ... to be pernickity, I'm disturbed by the whiteness of her skin, giving a feeling other than birth ... great concept though.

    This shot was one of the ones that gave rise to a forum thought. Hope it does as well this time.
