Nice.

I think if you delete the from it, then it should work correctly. Sometimes this happens with cutting and pasting.

Ah, now I can reach your site..........

Ach! The hidden code doesn't show up on the web page so you can't see what I mean. I know why that is but it's another story. In any case you have some extra characters in your link. If you just put this it should work: <a href="http://www.clivemeredith.com">Clive Meredith Art or Something Simliar</a> it should work correctly.

thanks ken,
i wont pretend that i understand any of the above but i think it should now be ok.i simply deleted the whole signature and started again

been working on this partridge for a little while,tried not to get too over obsessed with the plumage but couldn't help myself.despite this i'm happy that ive managed to capture something of the spirit of the bird.

Superb work Clive. Much more than just rendering of texture - this is a true portrait of the bird. Outstanding.

it may be an image that's been done a million times before, but very few of those match the quality of image depicted here - a solid, sculptural living bird with poise and beauty.

nick and mike many thanks for your comments,i have to admit to being very pleasantly surprised at the positive response ive had to this piece both here and on other sites.i had worried that it might be seen as an image that had been overdone and it looks like it's about to be published,so i'm quite chuffed with it.

And rightly so. Just because a subject has been covered before doesn't mean that it shouldn't be done again!

hi tim and mike and thanks again.ive been published for some time with regards to my animal prints but hadnt untill recently seriously tried pushing the birds even though i much prefer doing these rather than the fluffy stuff.my publishers much to my surprise decided to publish 3 of my bird images as they have apparently been very well received,which i hope means i can do what i really enjoy doing and still keep the publishers on board.win win i hope
