    "raf, mole I am a little surprised that you like it! It was really just a study in obtaining effects in PP and in the middle of fooling around, it turned out like this. Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of the steps and sliders I moved to get there. I doubt I could reproduce this exactly again. mole, if you like I can email you the original and my rough step by step if I can; it is just a two image layer taken on a tripod at different f-stops slightly offset to accentuate the "grain"."

Jade O, why surprised? I use love experimenting, and I understand. I have several shots which I could never reproduce (and I've really tried).

Thanks for your offer, but no need. I'll sit here and enjoy looking at your creation. It was my #1. Sorry it didn't place higher. One never knows how a photo will be received. The secret is to just have fun working on them.

    Jade, I'm sorry and surprised to see this excellent entry didn't make the TT. It was my #3. Like I said, I love the lighting, colours, and textures.

Thanks for making me feel so welcome after my long absence!

    Thanks to all for the votes and comments. I really did this more as a PP experiment and study so it was fun to see your comments on those two concepts. I am pleasantly surprised to see it voted as some top picks especially so from those whose opinions I value so highly.

    I love the colours and textures of this great shot! The lighting is lovely, it seems to glow. High in my TT.

    Wow, thanks again, Bill. It was an experiment for me in PP.

    A beautiful still life study that is rich in textures and subtle color. My favorite for this round! Good luck!

    This is a really beautiful shot. I hope you'll share more detail as to what you "did" in/with the layers! In my TT because of the lighting. Good luck.

    I like this. A study of tones and textures but with enough grounding in the original to give us context.
