I wanted to go out today but Murray's playing at the moment so I'm a bit stuck - even-Stevens and a bit nailbighting so far. And it's quite cold and very windy out anyway.
Well, I can't sit in front of the TV all day doing nothing, so here's a close up of one of my necklaces. Smile

PS: Actually, I feel I should have placed the hand further down in the frame but I'm not redoing it now. Just a niggle. I might take it down later if it irritates me too much. And I did get out - eventually. Smile

The placement works for me - just enough of the link, plus the strong downward diagonal. Like this one a lot, I have fond memories of your previous jewellery box uploads.
My only quibble is the bits of image background appearing outside the pincushion-effect frame. That just looks a bit fussy to me.

A good presentation on the diagonal, Chris, well captured. Do agree with what Moira said, though. Carol

I gather the helping hand wasn't much use to A.M. this time . . . .

. . . . but it's an excellent close-up photograph!

I Haven't seen the news yet, so I don't know who won it.

I am in fond of the diagonal and teh black an white.


I would have opted though to present it so that the index points upwards
(it doesn't make sense, even a guess from a peychologist would be wrong)

but it would look as it defies gravity,

Works fine for me, Chris, love the presentation, though go along with Moira about the bits appearing outside the frame, but it's just nit-picking Wink

Thanks all. Yes pascal, it's Silver Efex but I can't remember what I used, but I tweaked the contrast a bit and added a border.
I sort of agree about the bits outside the frame but as I was just playing around I thought I'd leave it. I quite like it for what it is - a frippery. Smile

And yes, I did go out.

Nice one, Chris, but perhaps if you'd managed to cross your fingers ...
