I'm becoming a slave to neat image...

Post: WOW! I can't believe it! A few more notes. Sorry about the brief description. I was studying for my medical board exam last week and didn't have a lot of extra time. This was snapped at my parent's house who have a full espresso machine on their patio (it's a long story). I put the camera on a tripod and turned out all ambient light. The light, therefore, comes from a 420EX flash which was aimed at the machine (no bounce). It made a nice glow and flare in the metal.

All I did post was some rotation, crop, contrast, saturation and neat image before some mild USM. The neat image is what gave it the glow.

notice here in this picture at the extreme right down edge there is a darkness which is causing picture a poor effect.

Congratulations on your first Ribbon with a glowing rendition of this caffiene machine! I have one of these in my shop (very expensive, whats it doing in your mom's patio?) but my work and my imagination didn't seem to come together. Great work, I'm sure this will be the first of many more to come!

I like the polished, industrial look, but something about this image make it look artificial. Too much sharpening or NeatImage perhaps?
