Very creative. I've seen those adds as well and I've been very tempted to make a purchase.

Looks like a fun project.

the first two are the first fence post i came across out in the paddock. it was after 3pm so all shots are side lit or back lit. the third shot i'm calling predator ball as it almost blends into the background
i took some other shots but wasn't happy with the glare and loss of contrast with the sun in the photo next i'll break out the pentax taks and smc's and a tripod. those first photos where to get me outside and to go for a walk and have a play.
