Liked the bokeh on this shot. The beads are decorations on a reproduction Victorian lamp in my living room.

Had my 36mm extension tube on.

PP - straightened, cropped, shifted color balance oranger, cloned out a couple of sensor dust spots (nothing like a macro to bring out the worst in one's dust spots), increased contrast, resized, sharpened.

love the color and texture, and nicely placed. I want to run my fingers along the strands of beads.
