3rd Rock(Melon) from the sun

By markst33    
I have been frantically scrabbling around looking for things to photograph with my Macro lens. Then I came across this. So I lit it a number of different ways. I have a few different versions - all of which are cool looking (IMHO), so you can expect to see another 1 or 2 popping up.

Created a brush to add the star burst - sunrise. Let me know what you think. Always interested to hear peoples opinions, tips and suggestions.

Winner winner chicken dinner. Won me the monthly club competition in the theme "Macro & Close Up" I felt it would go one of 2 ways, either it would bomb or else it would do well.

Fortunately it was the latter - which is important as I have a few beers on as a bet with a friend as to who finished ahead of who in the league table.

First win in a long time.
