Congrats on a great image and the blue! It's good to see a fellow Tokina user put that lens to good use. You now have the highest DPC score for that lens.

To quote Benicio Del Toro, "I won and I get to scream and jump a little. But I got to go back to work tomorrow". This is quite cool, though.

That said, I'd like to sincerely thank everyone for their votes and for all your great comments. It's really nice to be part of an international community of like-minded, focused, dedicated and caring photographer/artists. The DPC tribe is truly inspirational.

As far as the picture goes, yes, the drawers were arranged. Then, after test exposures, this was shot painting with an LED flashlight. PP was sharpening and resizing.

Thanks again to everyone.

CONGRATS!

Front page candidate. Excellently arranged (guessing you pulled all the drawers), processing compliments the scene perfectly.

This is amazing. Outstanding image that actually does remind me of my grandpa. 66 with the smiley face is the clincher.

This cabinet must be lots of fun! I love the angle. And look how number 66 on the right turned into a smiley face.
