A long time since I've shot my wife Nic.

This is as close to what I envisaged as my limited skills will get me.

And a border too.... Almost unique for me.

I thought I'd commented to this one, sorry. I gave it a 9, I think it's fantastic. Best looking bloated corpse EVER!

Given that she proclaimed she looked like a bloated corpse, I'm not at all sure I won her over with this one!

Amazingly this entry, nr. 18 and mine at 27! :(, should have been in top 3! cause they where the best "Expert Editing" entries of the challenge. But hey.. this is popular voting, and we all know how well that goes! :P

Congrats on freaking awesome photography/image!! :)

Hate this!.. haha KIDDING! But I hate to recognize that I would have been better without this as a challenger photo! Cause I predict this one becoming a blue ribbon!.. or at least a brown! (while mine I predict becoming a third if lucky!)

Even so, Im going to be correct and give this a 10!, even though I should give it a 1 so I could have more chances! :P

(would love to get in touch with you after the challenge, and maybe get a crash course/tutorial, on how you approached this lovely picture)
