Wow! Terrific macro capture, Don! Very different and creative shot of something that most of us would ignore!!! I really like this one! Very well done, my dear friend! #199748

Jean Crombie 12/28/2004 5:44:14 AM

Interesting subject, nicely done! #999640

Marcie A. Fowler 12/28/2004 6:07:34 AM

Great concept and well executed. How'd you get it to spray without getting a finger in the pic?? Very creative subject matter as well! #999683

Cathy Gregor 12/28/2004 6:15:51 AM

Great capture, Donald, I love the effects. Very well done, my dear friend - your good friend, Allan #999720

Donald K. Cherry 12/28/2004 6:21:16 AM

Thanks so much, Sanjay, Jean, Marcie, Cathy and Murry!

Marcie, I actually depressed the nozzle with a small piece of metal and then cloned it out in Photo Impact..lol. The tricky part was depressing the nozzle with one hand, while trying to compose the shot with the other hand since I didn't have a tripod available and didn't want to ask a co-worker to aid and abiet! #999725

Donald K. Cherry 12/28/2004 6:23:00 AM

Thank you too, Allan...you must have sent your comment as I was writing my previous reply and they crossed in cyberdom! #999732
