    Yep, like it, very well captured :smashin:

    Seems people have pulled out all the stops this month. I really must learn how to build a trigger, or buy one of those cheap ones from eBay.

    Agree with Simonblue that it is a nicely captured shot bot the border and name are distracting....

    +1 - don't see the point in having part of the picture as the border TBH - very good shot spoiled by that for me..... :(

    If pictures were printed, then the border is pointless - that I agree. But with most being viewed on a screen, I think it sets them off nicely.

    Personally, moaning about borders or signatures on the photos is completely irrelevant and pointless. It's the picture people should be looking at. Or would you not appreciate a great masters painting because he signed it and framed it?
    I think this is a great capture. Takes some patience and effort! Good addition to the pool of this months photos :)

    It's not a general moan about the use of a border (in this case) Miranda (- it's the format/style of the border being in effect an "overlay" on top of part of the image with parts of the image been seen on the outside of the apparent border - which as I've said spoils it a little for me as it detracts from my viewing of the lovely image to an extent - just as an Old Master drawing an inner border with a white magic marker about 1/4" wide two inches inside the outer edge of one of their canvasses would spoil that for me too ;)
