Love the shot of the Umbria there too. You've done real well to catch the "spookiness" of that wreck... it really is a moody one isn't it?

Top work.

I downloaded the beta of Adobe Lightroom a while back and it has this feature along with a pretty decent photo library/management feature. You could create slideshows for the web in flash REALLY quickly (for non-web purposes you could also easily knock up the image size in a few seconds).

Hi Peter,

It's sad to see such a good read having such problems. I always enjoy the new editions... I suppose I'm partially to blame for the predicament then. Well, hopefully I can share part of the solution too then.

I think what Eric was alluding to earlier is a piece of web technoloy call BitTorrents (http://en.wikipedia....wiki/BitTorrent). Using BitTorrent you could effectively spread the cost of the reader-base of UwP's downloads over that same reader-base... the first few people would download the PDF off your site, then second batch off the first and so on and so on (I like to visualise it as some kind of virus spreading through different hosts).

Hope that can be of some use.
Good luck!

I've tried a similar sort of thing with a barracuda I shot before, where he was way too blended with the blue background. Of course he was a fair bit closer, more prominent in the frame and only a single fish so it was a heck of a lot easier... its a good idea though and well worth a shot. You might just want to try it on one or two rays first to test the concept.

You could see if Noise Ninja (http://www.picturecode.com/) can help out any, might be a long shot but worth a go.
