Yes, Colleen! A rolling 5-week coupon that only ever gives a few kroner now and again - enough for some tins of baked beans, nothing more.Sad

I immediately saw a snake, and was rather peeved that you got there ahead of me!
If my green flowers were a shock, there's worse to come. I have pink to upload some time.

Could be a vine getting itself all tangled up. Or of course a snake.
First-rate use of shallow dof that combines nicely with the severe vignetting. Love the tone of the metal too. Very nice indeed, in fact.

Shades of the original scene and carnal thoughts running through your head naughty boy.
A magical monochrome image for sure.

It actually reminds me of the medical symbol ... it's a superb study! Love the differential focusing, and the combination of curves and straight lines let the eyes and mind play for ages Smile

Absolutely Award material, except that the site won't let me give it!!!! Sad
