Well done and congrats! Yes...I would think this makes you officially not a beginner anymore.

I'm amazed, after seeing your images (and your interest in doing something different) last year, that you've escaped promotion for so long!

The BSoUP portfolio is really nice, but aren't you going a bit mainstream (although skillfully, of course)? I thought that the nudibranch was the most interesting image, although the sharks are pretty evocative...

Thanks Tim, your comments mean a lot :) I had quite a few bashes (6 I think) before I settled for this one.... just tried the innovation of mine you mention on this months open portfolio, but it didnt work! Suppose I should be happy with just one month!
