Technically not as good as I'd wanted, but I started too late to do any more iterations.

This is a 8" stainless steel ball on the grass in my backyard after sunset. I really was running out of time here with darkness quickly setting in, which prevented me from seeing the dirt on the stainless steel ball.

I had great difficulty getting this focused, also because I had hardly any light to work with. After submission I found out that the image from this ball is situated on a sphere of 4 inches inside the ball itself, which is where I should have focused.

Thanks for the votes and comments.

This is one of those shots where nothing is technically "right" but it is visually very appealing. it kinda feels like i'm in a deep hole or cave underwater looking up.

Nice at a distance but noisy and dirty up close.
