Great shot Dolores, another winner from you I bet! I like the circuit board as a background.
Wish you all the best. #19494

Dolores Neilson

Hi Peder! Many, many thanks!! THis is the motherboard from my failed system ...the one that was a thorn in my side for a year. Glad to get rid of that beast! Appreciate very much your complimentary message, Peder!! So delighted you are back in the loop and have your weekends back! #44095

Carolyn M. Fletcher

Awesome shot, Dolores! #44099

Dolores Neilson

Thanks so much, Carolyn!! So glad you like it. The shoot took me over 10 hours (split up over two days) to get this the way I wanted it! Was a bit challenging to work with reflections, a motherboard composition that would work well with the drop and keeping that needle in focus. Furthermore, everytime I'd angle the needle so that I had most of it in focus range, I'd lose the drop...whew! I think I will take a nap now! #44108

Mark Oxley

What an absolutly fantastic and original idea Dolores, and expertly excecuted!! The little touch of the droplet on the point of the needle and the reflection there in is a stroke of genious!! #44148

Gary H. Minish

Fantastic shot, Dolores! Extremely creative and very well executed! Definitely worth all the time and effort! I agree with Mark, the reflection in the drop is the icing on the cake and really makes the picture. #44179

Dolores Neilson

Greetings from America, Mark!! Your compliment had me smiling from ear to ear! I appreciate immensely your commenting on my original idea (and all the other wonderful stuff)!! That means alot to me.

Thankie, Thankie, loved one! I appreciate your praise (but you're making me better than I am!) and it's always a pleasure to hear from you!!
