It may appear to be, but it is definitely not so. The image has not be post-processed in any way, because I wish to respect the rules set by both JC and Gordon. However, the framing is something I do to show that the picture is made by me. All pictures I post on the internet (except the ones which are not serious, like pictures for the review of a Sony flash gun I posted here on CL) are framed. I believe it would be similar to forbid adding a copyright to your picture, and that should be allowed (right

I know this is really picky but as JC has set the rules would you either set me straight in my analysis or consider resubmitting your entry, if only to make life easier for us poor old Mods who might have to start adjudicating on dozens of entries if you open this particular door.
No it's not picky, your just doing what you're supposed to be doing!
The original size of the image is: 4272 x 2848
The image below (unframed) is: 1024 x 683
This image was resized with a resizer from Microsoft so I didn't have to upload 7.24MB onto Flickr (takes a loooooong time). If you wish, Bob, you could compare this image to my entry. If there is any difference in aspect ratio, I'd really have no idea where it could come from. Again, I respect to work by the rules set by JC and Gordon to do no postprocessing and that's why this photo has not
been opened in Photoshop, I framed it with Power Point like I always do.
I just compared the size of the framed version I posted in the "On Assignment"-thread this afternoon and the original one. To my great horror they were indeed different in size. All I can say is...
... I don't know what caused this difference, but I'm sorry. Bob, I apologise from the bottom of my heart, because it must have taken you quite some time to show the the aspect ratio is indeed different. I have just replaced the previous image with a correct one. Again, I'm deeply sorry.
If the framing is really that much of a problem, I'd be willing to replace the framed image with a non-framed version. Gordon, please tell me whether I'd need to do that. Thanks in advance!
