Yeah right! And I can imagine who the scoundrel was who put you up to that

However, it does make an improvement. ;-)  Nothing like a little life in a
scene, particularly in a red canoe! ;-)

You see on the one hand I don't care how you did it, as I just see a damn
fine B&W photograph! Well done, as it's not too often one captures a
detailed and interesting B&W forest fine art photograph as you have here.

Sometimes I think it's best to bite one's tongue and just offer up the photo
for praise or flak. In this case it's praise mon ami. :-)
