It works for me, - interesting shot.

I would have cleaned the dust off the drivers before shooting as the small aperture has caught them well. Next best thing is to use a dust and scratch remover in Photoshop as I did in the mod.

Its a little wide, so I cropped the width from the left, and stretched it at the bottom. A little contrast and sharpening, and a top and bottom border added to balance the aspect ratio.


Hope this helps,



regards

Thanks for taking the time to look at my photo. I like your squarer crop; it looks much better. The 'dust' on the drivers is actually the poor quality finish of the metal (they did only cost 1 after all!).

Good shot, I like the idea. As an alternative you could adjust the position of the drivers so they are not all in a straight diagonal line.

Best wishes
