Thanks everyone :)

I still have a long way to go before I get to the amazing images of Christian Viladrich and Alex (allhoest) in white light though :) I'm getting there slowly and that is all the fun.

Alexandra,
The resolution on that image is astounding!! It's one of the best non professional images I have seen. You blur the line between amateur and professional.
