    Thanks for the opportunity, pixmedic :)

    Faucet by the raised gardens, out back. Actually originally took the photo for the purpose of shopping for a replacement (ball) valve. For some reason it's turned into one of my favourites :)

    That is a gorgeous shot, the light bloom contrasts the waterfall beautifully. Your friend also blends into the rocks in a way that I find quite pleasing.

    I suppose those sorts of things happen to everybody, just part of life. It is said in audio mixing that everybody will spend 10 minutes playing with a set of faders, getting the levels exactly right...then realizing that the channels you were working on are empty. Every field I have ever engaged in has something like this:trying to debug a script that isn't be called, tuning air/fuel ratios in an engine with the wrong injector timings, tuning a different guitar string than the one you are trying to listening to...chopping the wrong onion for dinner tonight. Learning to move on from such things with your pride intact is an important but challenging life skill.

    Ahem, nice picture.

    "Ribbon"

    10 points to anybody who can figure out what that is. This theme gave me an idea for a little experiment I'm still working with, but so far this is in contention for my favourite shot.

    EDIT: I don't think anybody will figure this out. My Virtual Boy has a failure which seems to affect all of them and is difficult to repair. This is a screenshot of Warioland. Irritatingly, it started to more or less behave itself after I got all the settings dialed in. While I do have clearer shots, I like how completely screwed up this one is.

    Nein.

    That is a good guess though, I see how you got there.

    That would be pretty cool, but no.
