Beautiful, Bruce. I love the txtures and colors. How did you get her to hold still for this?

An outstanding natural abstract, Bruce. I’m especially enjoying the subtle bits of iridescence scattered throughout.

I didn’t read the title and my head said “corn” while looking at the thumbnail before I clicked; the beauty of abstracts :slight_smile: Love it. PS: Nice lens!

Dennis I am an avid fly fisher and I tie a lot of flies. This photograph is of a pelt.

Bruce: This is fantastic! The 50mm has given you great DOF. I was wondering how you pulled off a three second exposure but your explanation cleared that up. Reminds me of the scales on a butterfly. Most excellent.>=))> :+1::+1::+1:

Thanks for the gracious comments and an editors pick is quite a surprise. It’s been some time since I logged on and I am really liking the changes to NPN… my favorite photography community.

Absolutely stunning, Bruce. Congats on the EP / WP…:+1:
