    Hi Roger,

    Interesting experiment and the improvement in technique is clear to see-much more use of light and as a result better definition.

    Cheers Keith, I said I wouldn't make a habit of stripping old figs but there's a couple of other likely candidates in the cabinet. :whistle:

    You're right Keith, it's not as if I haven't got a heap of "naked" figs waiting though. :)
