g'day Troy
i've had feelings like your at times, and have been annoyed that others may use 'my' idea and get credit that should have been mine
but ultimately i've come to realise that everything has been done or is being done and these concerns can become an excuse for not getting on with the work
i always strive to do my work my way, then if it comes under scrutiny and comparison with other work it stands or falls on it's merits
i just checked out your website, nice images but why your name so large
maybe you need to not hold on so close and so tight
