This was more a bit of fun than a serious attempt at a photograph, but I quite like how it turned out.

On another matter: I downloaded a demo version of Capture One Pro yesterday, Phase One's RAW converter – and it's awesome! Of all the RAW converters I've tried this is by far and away the most powerful and useful – I just wish it wasn't quite so expensive. DPP is pretty good (the software shipped with the 20D), the Adobe Camera Raw plugin is good for long exposures (it automatically removes hot pixels), and DxO Optics Pro is great for correcting distortion, but all things considered I think that Capture One has them beat. All I need now (other that the money to pay for Capture One when the demo expires 29 days from now) is a custom Etcetera profile and I'll be in digital heaven ;-)
