RE: IR - Hennessy Hammock Deep Jungle Hammock - Thomas VIckers
- Nice report Thomas. I especially like the pictures. I don't know if you
planned it this way or what, but the picture of the bubble pad on the tile
floor was ingenious! At first, I thought the camera was tilted and this was
the reason for the tapered pad. Then after staring at the pic a minute I
realized the tile lines were perpendicular. A great use of background to
convey sizing proportions.

- 12 x 12 tiles tell the tale.
Lighting was off, but I can't be perfect.
I use this background for a lot of gear pictures, I should probably note
the tile size in a report some day.
- Hi Thomas,
Here are your edits for the Hennessy Hammock Deep Jungle Hammock.
Overall, excellent report and good use of photos. Seems to be lots of
extra spaces. Could be yahoo.
You know the drill.
