Mind you, I've had plenty like that when I've left the lens cap on.

Re: walk in the black forest

Looks like the "rule of one" rather than the "rule of thirds" has been used to compose the shot.

They are thumbnails, you have to click on them to get the "full picture".

Good example of why using attachments is a bit of a waste of time.

Actually on my screen you can just make out the frame in the lower one.

I think we would need to see the "prize winning picture" Ian refers to to get the point he is making. I presume it was one of those "arty farty, minimalist" shots.
