  1. Very nice, Liz. That business of drawing the viewer to a focal point is not my strongest talent (I don’t think of it, mostly!), but that only means I can only get better, right?

    Though I’d prefer they house living tortoises, those shells are beautiful.

    1. Hmm, can think of some of your photos which draw the eye nicely – the deer, jewels of dew drops… I found Ming’s photography tips and his pictures an inspiration. Although i’ve found the rule of thirds grid helpful in composing shots and placing focal points.
      Yes, sad about the dead tortoises….. the crows get hold of them, flip them over onto their backs. Not my favourite bird; known as the Death Crows.
