Another painful shot to execute. Used back side lighting but the light would rattle the lens and sensor, so I used a long cardboard tube from camera to image to get the effect.

when there are so many similar pictures, one has to be of high quality both technically and in composition to stand out. this picture achieves that on both counts well done

Beautifull shot Great lighting, wonderfull contrast and a nice rich texture. Only two very small complaints. First I would have like a little deeper DOF to keep the couple of grains that were falling stright down in focus as well. But ther not realy bothersom enough to effect this great shot much. Secondly I think this shot could have benifited from a border. Once again not enough to mess up the shot. Very nice shot one of my top ten of the challenge 9
