    My thoughts exactly. Looked like load 11? Clean exhaust and appeared to be going well. Or alternatively perhaps WRC have invested in some decent black stuff?

    I think what you're referring to may actually be insect life (in the air, not on the sensor). Those damned midges again?

    No it's dirt on the sensor, if he takes a shot of a light coloured wall and looks at it the spots will still be there.
    A blower may get rid if it's just dust on the sensor otherwise take it to a camera shop and they will swab the sensor clean for a small fee.

    Many thanks Alan - thought I'd go for a close in shot with this one.

    You're welcome, and thanks. Managed to fit this one in around other commitments, so a bit of a bonus.

    Haha, many thanks Henry - going to have the Four Tops in my head all day now ;)

    Yes that's right. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to stand there when 6201 returns in that case!

    Many thanks - much appreciated.
