Almost no light Rob but very impressing! I like pictures where You have to look a while before You can see what's going on...

Hi Mario, I guess this thumbnail gets overlooked, so, many thanks for stopping to see 'what was going on'. Glad you like it. Cheers, Rob

PS I was on the same merchant ship as from Rotterdam.

Actually, it was the thumbnail that caught my eye, Rob. These sorts of obscure shots work pretty well sometimes, like here.

Hi not1word, Thanks for visiting, and I'm glad you like this 'obscure' shot. Cheers, Rob

Very good shot Rob, the thumbnail does not give it justice. Good luck in the NPC. Geoff

Hi Rob,

don't forget to include your npc entry number in the photo title and tag it 2009 may NPC.

Best luck,

Hi Steve, Geoff, Gil, Thank you very much for visits, and comments, and wishing you good luck with your entries. After spending so much time on NPC Toolkit, it would be odd to not compete, so I did finally get around to entering this. I'm sure it has a low viewing due to its thumbnail appearance, so it will be nice to give it better exposure via the NPC. Oh, what an over-sight regarding title and tag, of course I was so intent on including it in my All the Smalls web page, it quite slipped my mind. I hope people like the aspect of anonymous selection, and as a substitute for Picasa for a lot less effort (good work Gil on the spc).

Cheers, Rob

Yeah Rob,

of course, now you could write a new program which creates a picasa album, gets all the photos from the spc account, uploads them to the newly created album and then numbers them in the right order. To make such a program super duper, it should also brew you some coffee while performing those tasks...

Other tasks the program could do would be to vote for the entries, count the votes and give itself the award :D

Of course I joke, and yet, I don't doubt you could write such a thing ;-)

Thanks for the help with the spc. The page of smalls is very helpful and given how long it took me to do the picasa album, that one may not repeat itself in future spc...

All the best,

interesting shot...nice picture...

RobStamp on May 26, 2009

Hi juncujuncu, Thanks for taking a closer look. You seem to be interested in contests, you might like to take a look in the forum, for the NPC in the Games and competitions in the English, or the CSP in the Italian.

Cheers, Rob
