The corkscrew on a "lady's version" of a Swiss Army knife.

I used my macro lens as well as all three Kenko extension tubes.

Not much post processing past a crop, and few minor tweaks.

I must admit that I picked this subject (over other more interesting ones) because of the eye candy factor.
As soon as I thought of this "army knife", I visualized the correct angle to get the bright pink in the background. I sold out to DPC, I am ashamed LOL
