    Can i give some unsolicited advice?

    Ok i will anyway. I'm no expert, but i used to work on a news program. I have a couple of little tips that might boost your production value:

    - Try a more flat lighting scheme. The left side of her face was a little bit shadowy, and the right side has highlights. Typically, news lighting is very very flat. Something to do with illuminating everything, hiding nothing... But that may be the ex film student in me.

    - Tamara does well for someone who, i presume, hasn't had much experience in presenting. One thing i'd say is to smile less. I'm not saying to be as stony faced as a TV newsreader, but tone it back a little. People find it difficult to focus on information with a pretty girl smiling at them. There's probably a study somewhere to back that up.

    No one might even care about this, but just thought i'd try to help bring more perceived value to your fine site (which i do rather enjoy).
