That is simple wonderful. The short lens gives it a nice bit of distortion.

@Michael Rawluk: Thanks Michael - It was shot with the new Sigma 10-20 lens which I love using . Even though its only been 2 weeks since I got the new camera its really opened things up creatively for me......in fact the D40 and 10-20 have been welded to my face (:-)which is why I've been guilty of not commenting on everyone else's pics as much as I normally like.
