This Month assignment theme is "Resolution" right ? But still I don't get it but would wish to participate because this is the first time that I would like to try.
Any idea what "Resolution" look like to be ? 8)

Hi Will-McK and kpr - nice photos! Could you both link to smaller versions which are no more than 500 pixels on their longest side though to comply with the rules of the assignment? Thanks!

no need to resize before uploading to flickr. Upload the original to flickr, click on it to view, then just about click on all sizes, select medium, then use the url location just below for linking to camera labs.
