Hey guys,

I shoulda put more effort into the "Film Test", the average street scene in
week 12 doesn't do much for me. A little pan down might have helped...

Week 14 I like better. At first I cropped the car reflection out but the
shot became really flat.

The still life is my fave of the 3 weeks.

I should print out some of these larger to see if I get anything out of
them. Many times I do a quick scan and might be missing something off the
monitor image...
