    Neil: I've made a host of good friends on this site since joining. I value the contact no end and enjoy learning from them. I'm sure I speak for most of the members when I say that no apology is necessary or expected. No one read an ulterior motive in your choice. We're happy to have you on the site. Your talent and your imagination are both obvious and inspiring.

    Thank you ever so much for your votes and hearty congratulations. I'm delighted to have won the challenge :-).

I must apologise for winning my own challenge. I'd like to clarify that I had no idea of what I would enter when I chose this topic, indeed, I didn't even want this theme - 'Begins with H' would have been my choice. I just picked 'Paper' out of the air. Sorry if some people found this theme a bit 'bland'. I'll do my best to give the panel more interesting themes to choose from this time ;-).

Thank you all once again, Neil.

    Congrats on your well deserved win! I also try to find an interesting or humorous title but sometimes it just doesn't catch ;-)

    Thank you ever so much both.

As for the lighting , it was a bit of a rush job as it took me a lot longer to fold the papers than I thought it would and my last chance of daylight was fading fast. Looks like it turned out well in the end though :-)

    Thank you. I was after something 100% paper that just about anyone could take and from people comments it looks like I got it just about right :-)

    Jade O - I do hope you're right LOL. Thank you for the lovely comment. As far as hearts being 'cliche' , I guess thats just because they are such an important representational shape for a lot of people and I can't see that changing anytime soon, so I'm afraid you're probably going to be seeing lots more of them in the future ;-) .

Mepo - Thanks for noticing the title. I do try and think of something appropriate, poignant and catchy for titles and this one whent through many changes, before I settled on the one you see.

    I think you will win. That said, this is very pro and very good but gosh the heart thing is so cliche. But if this is an original idea, well, kudos. Technically near flawless. My no. 1.

Anthony Comyn - Yeah, it's strange how some had a double shadow and some didn't.

    Effective image. Highlights and shadows were nicely managed. You have some double shadows, but it appears to work fine with composition. Good Image.
