Haven't been scoring all that well lately so I might as well get silly. A closeup of a wrinkled dollar bill focussed on George's eyes, with the wrinkle helpfully providing a frown, and making him look a little blue, besides. Warped, literally.

Had the 36mm teleconverter on so we could get up close and personal with George.

Also a commentary on the current economy, especially what used to pass for my retirement fund. Read into it what you will, and for heaven's sake someone please find this interesting! Or at least weird.

PP - rotated upright, white balance, shifted color balance more toward teal, levels, cropped, resized, sharpened, cloned out two spots of sensor dust.

I like the frown but the dark line through the face is too distracting. Lets hope he is smiling soon.

I can't figure out this one, is there a magnifying glass or? anyway the dark line in the middle ruins the photo

I feel like I'm under the sea when I look at this. In a good way. My favorite macro so far.
