Good Day to you all,

Thank you so much for all your great comments and votes following yesterdays "Beach Babes" upload.

As Lord Nelson, and I am sure so many seafarers would have said "a change of tack today". I have opted for something quite ordinary in subject terms, but something I found quite interesting to photograph.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

As you say a 'change of tack today', as Scaramanga states have I missed the point is it out of focus for a reason...

A bit of well coloured grot Nathan.
And I would suggest to discover that if an image is MEANT to be out of focus,
just look at the exif data to see what aperture the author of the image has used !!

I like them both too but the focus on the outer part of the apple in V2 gives the rotting interior an even grottier look.
