    A wonderful piece of art. I think it would be better without the black frame.

  8. Super shot, Ben.....love the abstracts :biggrin:
  9. Great choice of colors, shapes and framing !!! I LOVE these kind of images... MORE !!!

    PS. do you know how much was the enlargment, using your 105mm. (108 ?) plus the reversed 50 mm. ? I used to know how to calculate but i can't remember... could it be as simple as 105/50 = 2.1:1 ?
