Thank you Luis and Len,
the more I use the Zeiss 4/300mm I bought recently, the more I like it  
(even though it's terribly OT - but Zeiss is near enough to Leica on the 
scale of what's good) this shot was taken with it wide open and the 
frame was cropped copiously too.
I love the smooth out of focus background (is that what people mean with 
bokeh?) and the colour rendition is exactly as I saw it too.
Something tells me I out to get out for a walk more often - I must have 
a chat to my agencies about that :-)
Cheers and thanks again for looking
