Thanks PhilVery very nice contrast and lines.
Thanks ConnieI like this -- it has that "what IS this?" look and keeps me studying it for clues! Now I'll go check out the Bucket, see the image which inspired this one....
Yes, I enjoy these type of conversionsI saw the bucket first so know the story. Nice tones here. Worth the PP effort.
Thanks Gordo.22 - after viewing the bucket, that is a very cool setup, nice work with the shot.
23 - excellent, great conversion processing as well.
Thanks Eric.Excellent composition and conversion, Wade. And thanks for the one in the bucket that Chris enjoyed . . .
Thanks!Well done and creative shot!
Thanks my stl friend.Gotta hand it to you, Wade - you're really making the 500 sing! That fire shot is outstanding, and the others are equally as fine. Well done!
Yes, he is in my mind.I love today's post. It's neat that you are keeping Chris in mind as you shoot!!
Thanks Phil, I will take a photo with my iPad that shows the object and place in the bucket.Very interesting image. I have absolutely no idea what it is, but the thing in the lower right corner looks like a thousand-year egg to me.
nope, I posted in the bucket what it isCool image. Wild guess…a close up of a butterfly wing? Have no idea really.
I thought it was not bad, but the plate was at a slight angle which affected the AF a touch.That's really sharp for handheld at 500mm.
lol.thanks LyndeeI have no idea what that could be, but I can see it as a wall hanging!
Oh so close.Drip tray?
Thanks so much, yes almost like on acid.The lines and curves in day 22 are very well composed. The processing is stellar.
Not sure about day 23 object but reminds me of a psychedelic painting
Thanks Connie, I knew you would like these colorsI love this!!! You're a man after my own heart, Wade! Beautiful colors, fascinating, intricate design woven throughout this image..... A wall-hanger for sure!
thanks Nick appreciate your words.Wade, you have the perseverance of a saint in a den of sinners, and the creativity of someone who knows his optics so well. I dream of making my nifty 50 deliver such images, but have yet to find the groove that you are so certainly in.
