Another pushpin shot.

I may have finally reached my breaking point regarding sensor spots...even at F8, there were a lot of them to remove in this image. So we're off to the camera store for a cleaning this weekend! I've been reluctant to do this since I'll be without the camera for about a week while they work on it.

To the point. Hope they clean your camera sensor well to eliminate the tedious job of removing them in post. Nice work Martha. #11681975

Excellent title for these pointy pins Martha, love the focus point and depth, also the color and light!! Fantastic macro!! I know what you mean about those sensor spots, I get so many I have to clean my own sensor or my camera would be in the shop most of the time:-) #11682031
