Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld, Germany

Good "British" scene.I would have maybe tried turning the camera on its side as well to get a bit more foreground in (but then maybe you did)

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Good idea. I did want to get the house in though. The house is in West Ireland.

@MadScientist: That's never stopped him. He is cutting the grass in his garden in Ireland. He only visits twice a year so you can imagine how tall the grass was.

Álvaro from Cascais, Portugal

Great scene and good shot.

@Álvaro: Thanks.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

He has the look of a man who could do with your help!

@Curly: Believe me he needs no help! He is 82, is my wife's Uncle and comes from the West of Ireland. When he visits and helps me in my garden I struggle to keep up with him even though I am nearly 40 years younger.
