lol - you're right. I remember thinking the soldier/horse combo and the perspective is similar during the voting. Didn't realize it was with an A700 as well :) Congrats on yet another ribbon.
Very cool username btw - I'll get there soon and will find out if it's true :)
And thanks for your pointer about recovering images from the CF after they're deleted. I now have the software required - should I need it in the future.
