    Good news! N.T.'s ungracious reply hasn't made it to my Optus server - or
    has been removed. Still on Google, 'though.

    This chap has an interesting (and slightly mad) approach to scanner
    photography:

    Here is one of mine (conventional) of a bioluminescent mushroom - taken in
    2000:

    Sometimes the scanner is preferable to a camera. Its great for copper
    coins, for example (but not so good for silver).

    If you have lots of little parts, then a scan is wonderful, 'cause it
    appears that all the little bits are hanging in space together (on the
    glass). No need for a fancy background - just a sheet of paper.

    Horses for courses.

  8. Well done, even when the white is pver exposured, I think that gives
    some special feeling to the photograph.
    I havent tried metal, I will try to do some!
