    There is a small bump on the shadow itself, and thought i woudl leave that in. Its where the 2 halves of the ball joins and has a line all round it (cheaply made ??) and decided to keep it in instead of PSing it out, dont know why but i like it there.

    Cheers for the comments. I spent ages thinking of an idea, then one came out of the blue.

    This is great. Really clean and simple. Reminds me of the Japanese flag (and that is no bad thing)

    Only slight comment is that the window sill looks a bit grey; it would have been perfect if you'd adjusted the white balance so that the sill was white.

    Nice, and simple, but very effective. Like the contrast between the white, shadow, and red. Almost Steve Green'esk.
