Another shot of a sandbag. Hey, they're there, they're patient, they don't move much. And in the mornings, the light is nice. So there you have it.

Curves, levels, convert to grayscale, duotone, levels again.

Much prefer the little Sony P&S for detail and close-ups. Open to suggestions for a lens that will let me do this with the Canon....

I find the same thing with our fancy cameras! They suck at macro shots. Top on my wish list is a macro lens, but it's hard to imagine it doing any better than this. The depth and detail on this is truly amazing.

Deb, great shot. I love the composition which means you not only get a range of textures on the sandbag but also that the shot has a real 3d feel to it that gives it tones of pop

Duper duotone conversion as well which is strong enough to give the image feeling but not overpowering to the extent that you lose the 'feel' of what is being photographed

Another way underrated shot from you, Deb, shoulda been close to the top. Well at least you can say you don't go with the masses.

You are giving a lot of props to sand bags lol. I never would have known. What a great macro! Excellent capture of texture as well.
