Many thanks Eddie - given the quality of the images there I can not help but feel they were being generous - still pleased though! :) :) :)

Well deserved! As said before, and worth repeating again, that image was world class work.

Oh brother, now we're gonna have to get all new hats for 75 - none of his old ones are gonna fit any more! :lol:

Seriously, CONGRATZ, man! I agree it is well deserved, and I for one am envious. :mrgreen: Maybe someday. In the meantime, it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy... 8-)

Many thanks hkv, rnabholz, billbillt and KurtM. Very kind.

To be honest it feels like that Peter Sellers film, The Party I think it was called, where his name gets jotted down by accident!
Did not quite believe it till I saw it up today. :)

There is an Administrator's Appreciation Gallery section in the forum - some pretty amazing images there!

Many thanks gekko - and many thanks for your patient help and encouragement over these many months since I joined the forum.

Well done.
I seem to remember waxing lyrical about that image. I obviously have great taste ;)

But seriously, enjoy the well deserved praise.

You worked at that image, and you deserve the praise.

Ah yes ... this was of special interest to me since I have essentially the same equipment. Why, maybe I can be famous someday too!
