OK...I'm going to fess up to a little trickery with this shot.
This is really a miniature waterscape of a small rockpool no larger than a puddle.

Full view needed to get the desired effect, enjoy! :D

hay, really nice pic - it looks real though lol , but it depends if you are looking at it from a big view, or small.

can i ask, what is the difference between a canon eos 350d - and the d60 ?

The D60 is only 6.3 mp and is about 3 years old but is built to the same standard as the pro models, weighing in at about twice the weight of the 350d or 300d. The 350D is 8 mp and will take higher resolution pics with less compression artifacts due to a better imaging processor, but little difference if you shoot raw files. The lens will make the most difference to shots in raw file mode, the sharper the glass the better the pic. With the D60 ( or any pro quality model) the dust and water seals are alot better and the shutter is rated for about 100,000 shots compared to about 30,000 with the 350d. I think I would of killed the 350d by now with the sort of places I take my camera, (bad weather, high winds etc.) Big diff in the price, the D60 was $5,500 new, but I bought it 2 years old for $1000, I will keep it for another year and then trade up to a second hand 5D :drool: but I only buy second hand gear from a pro camera shop that clearly states the condition of the equipment and puts their reputation on the line. I would buy a second hand 20D over a 350D anyday. Hope that helps dude! :)
