As a stand alone image, not part of a challenge, this is a beautiful shot. The lines/curves remind me of the refraction of water underneath a small wave.

like a plume of smoke.

Hmmmm. I suppose it could be interpreted as a variety of things. I have to say though, this one is not one that strikes my fancy all that much. But it is great to experiment.

Great movement in this. Old school aurora borealis flowing over a kid hiding under the covers. nice contrast and tones. I'll be putting my pinhole together sometime this week, so I'm taking notes.

Shape for shape's sake. Fascinating image.

The balance between whites, blacks & mid-tones is really nice in this photo. The softness from being a pinhole shot adds to its appeal.

When I look at this image, the word imagination comes to my mind. It puts my mind in a thinking mode.

The fresnel lens was an inspired choice for this challenge.

I think it's a picture of cloth covering furniture, no it's a flag, no not that, it's nothing but shapes and tones and composition. I realise I just love this one and I click 10.

Certainly an image worthy of contemplation. Beautifully done. But what's this? No magnifying glass visible in the image? Surely something's amiss. Surely this can't meet the challenge. Surely, I jest.

A nine for you, Shirley.

It may have been shot through a magnifying glass but without part of it in the frame to show the difference of magnified and not I don't feel this image has met the challenge.

Can't tell if there is a magnifying glass used here or not...

Like layers of a posthumous cake.
