    Blimey guys - that was quick! :)

    Mark, the moon is a tricky one, partly because it's just so small in the sky, so you either need very long lenses, or have to settle for relatively low resolution, but also partly because of course it moves, and it moves surprisingly fast. (Sorry - I know I'm stating the obvious here.) But of course if you can see it, it's in full sunshine, and so there shouldn't be much difficulty in getting a fast enough shutter speed. Here though it doesn't look like subject movement to me, or even camera shake - I'm wondering if you just missed the focus a bit? Hard to tell for sure.

    Re Almark's 'moon' query. The moon is very tricky and to retain detail it's necessary to underexpose dramatically . Also, it doesn't seem to respond well to auto-focus and manual often produces a sharper result.

    My shot is straight out of the camera (via Flickr's auto resizing) with no post processing of any type whatsoever.

    Olympus Mju Digital 600, Super Macro mode.

    Tanya - you've posted a FirstView picture!! I'm so happy. :) You do realize it's just the start though? I'll be expecting one from you next month, and the next, and... :)

    And as if that wasn't enough, my day is complete - BigWill has posted too. This is almost like Wales winning a Grand Slam - it just doesn't get any better! ;-)

    Big Will drinks Carlsberg!

    Is Big Will aware that we now know he drinks Carlsberg? Is that not an arrestable offence on the Emerald Isle?

    Dear Ian, For an old 'pissoir' this does appear to have been freshly sluiced down - for which, presumably, we must offer you our grateful thanks. MikeD.
    PS: How many pints does this necessitate, I wonder?

    Re: Time to go out.......

    It doesn't have to be 'interesting', that's the point, just what's around, not what's been sought out... A snap, straight out of the camera. ;)

    Admittedly, it appears not to be for the feint hearted - there are some in these here parts unwilling (or perhaps unable) to put forward anything that hasn't been fussed over, processed, cropped, re-shot, re-processed, sorted, etc... :D
