Slasher pics (aka Gri-Grignes Voodoo)

I've been struggling with my slashing for a while now, and never getting a real grigne, where the lip really sticks up and the slash yawns like a blue whale chomping on some shrimp cocktail. With a bit of luck and lots of practice, I started getting better results, and with some pointers from the friendly folk in the beginner's / intro forum, I was able to understand what was working and what wasn't.

Thought I'd share the results here, since they photographed well. :-)

Grigne at Last!
