And the winner of this duel is Rich (West 1871) with "A wild stab in the dark" against "Row, Row in in your boat" from João (GEM).

I must say two very good vignettes full of action.
Congratulations to the both of you!

Thanks João for a great duel :thumbup: A victory is only as great as the opponent :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: A heck of a lot of details in yours mate,the dingy looks very life like :thumbup:
Is it me or was there a hell of a lot of votes this time :-D

To Paul and little Dom;I will take your word about me asking about the German,because I cannot remember a bloody thing :scratch:

I did try to do the picture in the dark with a small led light above,like the moon.It was a fine line between to dark and to light :-)

Once again thanks to everyone involved and for who voted.

Cheers Rich :thumbup:

I write everything down and keep a detailed cross referenced file system. :-) :winky:
Good idea with the LED :thumbup: :thumbup: I´ve tried getting lighting effects like the one you´ve done, ie; for midnight walkies, but now i know how. :-) :-)
