Awsome; Ken!
Woah, yea, this turned out even better than I had imagined. THe tiny checkerboard has big time potential. I can see lots of concepts placed on this abstract background. THis is a great graphic elements shot. Love it. DOnna

PS Joan, I Post a LOT of origionals in the contest. . I think that too many people think that PS is the answer to a lousy shot.
The camera does a great job when used properly and that's when a great PS user should apply his skills..
.I'd love to see more images posted straight out of the camera from Ken. He's a great shooter and should show them off more often. He always does and exceptional job at PS and uses it as a tool and not an instant fix up for a lousy shot..

Yeah, early March must have been Checker Madness for us both. I like your sweep going up the back; I didn't have enough paper to try that. (Hence I had to line up other cocktail shakers at the back of my frame, to hide the paper's edge!)

I have nothing against altering photos to improve or create a particular effect but it's great to see this photo achieved with camera skill and photoghapher creativity. I'm glad it's a winner.
