Challenge: Puzzle Macro III (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D300s
Lens: Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro for Nikon
Date: Dec 21, 2009
Galleries: Abstract, Macro
Date Uploaded: Dec 20, 2009

The Image: It's a CD Case centre where you push the CD into place. I took this against the light with a polarizing filter.

The Edit: lots of layer adjustment masks for colour, levels, curves, Noise Ninja, USM etc.

The Prediction: will it get to 6?

[Dec. 22nd, 2009 02:31:39 PM]

The Image: Yes, it's a CD Jewel Case Centre...most people guessed this. It's actually DIDO's album. I used the polarising filter on my macro, handheld, shot against the daylight. I like the final result.

Edit: Not much at all...

Currently: 90 votes and 6.8's...wonder if it will get close to 6.9's???

I'm sure it's something to do with cds or dvds but I can't match that centre structure to any of my keepers, so I don't know.

Good choice for title, this cd case is very much like an UFO.
Great DOF, and the colours add a lot to the composition.
