Breathe

By solkku
Good evening everyone! Here's a shot I took yesterday in my appartment window against the sun and bright cloudless sky. This is an idea that struck to me while eating lunch at work. I bet many of you wonder what liquid this is.. and the answer is: none. It's an extreme close-up of the handle on an IKEA fork. It has a blue see-through plastic handle with bubbles inside it. I just thought I would try something different for a change.. nothing nature-related hehe. Smile

Processed RAW, cropped, fixed the background and added the frame in PS.

Info: Canon EOS 20D | Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro | Kenko Extension tubes (all three) | ISO100 | f/9 | 1/100 secs

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.
