    Modesty forbids .... but !

    Some of you were kind enough to say nice things about the version of this that I had in Mono Mini Competition #2.

    It has been picked up by The Herald, one of Scotland's 'quality' national daily newspapers and featured in their 'Picture of the Day slot, today. Only problem is that they cropped a bit off the left hand side which, IMO, reduced the impact. But, there's not a lot you can do once the press get in amongst things.

    But, quite pleased.

    Hi Donald,

    I'm not sure what to say; everyone else has 'used up' all the standard terms that are most appropriate

    Ah, I know;
    Donald, May I complement you on your good fortune today in the Herald - it is a worthy accolade to your photographic and post processing skills that such an esteemed publication has chosen to recognise your talent and share it with the wider public of your great country.

    Hmmm, too much?
    Well despite, the 'flannel' factor, it is sincerely meant Donald.
    Why else would I go to the trouble of finding something original to say (perhaps because I'm weird).

    Well done mate,

    Well done Donald,

    How did the paper get to hear about it? (Perhaps they follow your work here at CiC!).

    National Geographic next? Well done, Donald. And BTW, that poem is atrocious.

    Excellent work Donald and I am going to be really smug here and say it does not surprise me in the least. Next I really want to see your work on a gallery wall. You have a certain way of capturing little bits of Scotland that makes such a refreshing change from the usual 'top of a shortbread tin' cliches and I would be surprised if that goes un-noticed.
