hey bod, late to the table i am, but this is truly an excellent image. i had no idea the s602 was capable of such sharp detailed macros :) since you got that camera you have been rocking lately. keep it up :).

Wow wow and double wow!

LIGHTING: Brilliant. Thanks for explaining what you used! I was curious about how you acheived that brilliant blue shine. I LOVE the lighting, but the inside seems a little dark. Not enough to make it noticeable, I'm just curious how it would look with the inside lighted.

CHALLENGE: This met the challenge perfectly, and your ribbon was very well deserved.

SUBJECT: A pen holder? I had NO idea that's what this was. I think that's what makes it so interesting. I thought it was a very LARGE container, meaning your angle and focus were excellent. The effect is fantastic.

OVERALL: I know I'm supposed to honestly "critique" this, but I just can't think of anything that needs improving. Your award was well-deserved. You not only showed great technique, but an awesome eye as well. GREAT job!

Burnout to blackout. However, it is a photo of interest and I give it a high vote.

Great! I love this, it is so deep! I think it might be just a tad too sharp but otherwise a ribbon photo. Good job!

Metals are real tough to capture correctly. You've done an admirable job... nice image. My eye wants the circle completed though. Love the repetative circles a lot. Great job overall... Dave
