The black and white gives it a more dark (not under exposed) feeling, fitting well with the context of the subject.
Good to see Harry back too. God only knows what mischief will he get up to this year.
Thanks Dom, "Dark" was my aim, I'm glad I accomplished it
Harry, I'm sure he'll get into one or two scrapes through the year. :D

You must have very flexible fingers and arm. I couldn't get my hand and fingers into that position - I did try :LOL: It is very nicely lit. I'm glad you didn't have to retake the shot since it was real.
Its real, as in its my arm, a real syringes and needle was used, the rest is not so real,
I laid the needle across the vein and cloned the vein over half the needle.
Fingers, I've not really thought about it TBH, but I do need to use them and wrists quite a bit,
during the day... Thanks again Bee :)

Nearby, I like the lighting and they look good against the black.
Fruit, the orange thing is odd looking, and the tiny fly has loads of detail.
Dirty, good to see dirty Harry is back! Your drug user shot, great detail, a very gritty shot.
The fruit wasn't really what I expected,/ was hoping for, but as Tim is fond of saying PABD :D
Gritty & dark was the look I was going for, glad it worked
I'm sure the little miscreant will be around from time to time :D
Thanks Clive

Dirty Harry... I lol'd... Minions are ace. The stark flash makes it look like you caught him out... Thumbsup from me :)
Cheers Ian, he'll be popping in an out through the year no doubt .

I have no idea what that is, and besides there are only 5 I said six stack :D
It was a program on over Christmas called the Stick Man.

Yay Harry Is back :banana:albeit a bit Dirty...

I was reaching for the Narcan at the sight of your IV usage, hope that was a clean needle and not one that was saved from your garden that featured in one of your photos last year.
Great take on the topic and I think the B&W did it justice, not sure a colour photo would have portrayed the same Dirty image.

what a contrast of shots both work well for the theme, the darkness of the first suits the subject.

You spoil me Heather :D

Thanks Heather (y) and no, the colour version didn't quite portray the effect I was looking for.

Both good shots, lots of detail in the moon and a bit of fun in Harry's shot.

I must say I like the second, certainly made me smile :)
Thanks and that's always the plan :)

Ah, good to see Harry is back to play. I wouldn't call a quarter of a million miles distance is local.
Its closer than the sun, which I tried for, but couldn't get a focus lock on it :D
Cheers Stan (y)

All Hail Harry, King of the Britons.
(I didn't vote for him).
(Help Help, I'm being oppressed)
:LOL:

It's a nice shot!
Thanks Dave (y)

Super moon shot, lots of detail in there considering how far away it is, the second one made me smile :)
Thanks Susie I'm glad it made you smile :)

Harry! Who's Harry! ... Well that's nicely done, well set up & lit. And I like the muted BG scenery.

Lots of nice detail and good exposure in the moon shot, i was nearly tempted to use something similar to it as my first photo in the Week 0 theme of Nearby but decided on the church shot instead.

According to Google.
Distance from Earth to Moon is 384,400 km
Distance from Earth to Mars is 168.47 million km
Distance from Earth to Sun is 147.27 million km

The Harry shot made me smile too

I'm liking the moon shot Chris - lots of detail and I hope that Harry's going to be making a regular appearance again.

Hi Chris

Tall baby G.Raffe works for me. I'm sure you will be able to shoehorn a C.Lion into one of the weeks.

Nice one for the theme. I see where you're coming from, even a short giraffe will be a Tall giraffe one day.

Got to love a giraffe. Possibly one of my favourite animals.

Great pick for the theme and great pic.

I really like that. The composition is great with the lighter new skin against the weathered old skin. The expression on the little beastie is great too
