my suggestion is that would it be nicer if fresh petals were used?

Oh, yes you are right. Thanks.
There was a dried rose around so i just dismembered it and did not think of getting a fresh one.

If i do another one with fresh flowers you get honourable mention. :)

Yes, happy new year to you too. At least you have a connection at the office and at the university.

No, its the large white ceramic plate that i always use, with a wine glass borrowed from The Architect.

I think fresh petals would not be able to produce the strong colour contrast which makes this shot so good.

By the way Mr Tan, what software do you use to type those maths equations? Need to learn how to use them for a project next term.

Those are merely MS Word's equation editor, then print-screened and the image cropped to the desired size.

Not sure if you are familiar with equation editor, so here goes:

Right click the tool bar, and 'customise'. From the left menu, select 'insert'. Then, on the right menu, scroll down about half the way down and look for the equation editor. its symbol is a red and blue sqrt(alpha beta), just fyi. Drag that and drop into any of the tool bars. If you had taken the standard installation routine with MS Office, i doubt you'll have the software available. When you click on the editor it will prompt you to insert the office CD et al.

It's fine for engineers and probably most scientists, but it does lack a few mathematical objects like the proper N, Z, Q, R and C number field symbols.
