Neat paperweight (or whatever), almost a lensball effect. I like the first slightly better - less visible background.Gordo! Thanks for hosting again, and look at all of these terrific submissions you've garnered already.
I looked around today for something to shoot. Not sure what the heck it is (it belongs to the Boss), maybe a paperweight? Anyhow, here are two quick snaps (kinda inspired by Connie's recent ink & glycerin shots, but of a physical object ), worked up a bit differently - not sure which one is somewhat better.

Thanks, Paul! I am so excited to see evidence of new life and Spring coming..... I love daffodils, they are among my favorite flowers, and they always herald the arrival of Spring for me. I had to crop the photo somewhat because there was a lot of extraneous stuff in there that I didn't want or need, and even shooting at f/1.8 to get nice bokeh did not really solve the problem totally. I'll be watching these leaves now for the arrival of the daffodils themselves....Nice!
