@no1 - And those who can't teach, teach gym? By the way, I only said what I said because you were being uncharacteristically helpful (as far as I know). Usually you just make hilarious comments and quote stuff out of context.
@SaritaBeth - Appreciated. I really doubt I'm going to win this week. I haven't seen myself in the hotness at all, while I've seen the other fogged entries many times. I think Pica fared better earlier on in the week. But maybe this one will show some steam in the latter half of the week.
I still think your leaf submission has transparency in it. I realize that parts of the black showing through are because of the spaces inbetween, but what I was talking about was where the outline is grey-ish, because the black is being seen through a transparency white-ish layer (i.e. a leaf). If it was just being seen through gaps, the border should be visible as black only, or not at all, rather than coming up in lighter colours as it is in your comp. Unless there is some incredible detail in your leaf and it isn't really a solid colour but very fine line work...
@SkekTek - hehe, rechargeable.
