    Hey everyone. I'm currently designing our FOF stand and one of the things i'd like to do is create a map of the UK with pics of your tank in the place of your county. If your up for it please send me a pic of your tank along with your county and i'll see how it looks. Please the file as your name and county ie.Dancrawford_northamptonshire.jpg Please send me the best version you have.
    Send it to dan.crawford@ukaps.org
    Cheers

    Dan

    Do you want to use the one I sent you the other day? Or a pic of the new tank?

    Great idea :D

    Does it have to be full tank shots, or can it be macros?

    awww why does george have to live in Lincolnshire, how am I suppose to compete with him :( :D

    How many pictures are you planning to have on the stand Dan?, are you just using one persons tank from each county or just as many as you get sent?



    Thanks

    Well i'm trying to get one picture per county, i couldn't fit more than one in each area. It's gonna be quite tough to fill the whole country so if there are some counties without photos then maybe i'll fill them with those who have missed out on their own area?

    No worries mate, thats not really the point :) It's more to illustrate the scale of the aquatic plant scene within the UK.

    Yeah, sure. It was just so you could actually see if it was any good for what you wanted. I have the hi-res ones at home so i'll take some more and email them all over and you can pick and choose.

    You can add Daniel to staffordshire then, It's a shame my cube isn't grown out, I think it would make a nice demonstration of what you can do on a pretty tight budget. It cost me less than £100 for everything.
