Sorry tdw, I'm thinking that may not have come out right; foils have been around for quite some time ( couple decades maybe ) so that's where my old school reference came from and why I didn't understand the dismissal or claims of photoshop, the tech has been around.

However, Foils on a 72' is impressive without question.

Now my arms are tired with all that back stroking

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
