I don't know where you would use these lamps, but great photo with the genies to match. Great PoV too!

... tells a story. Hmmm ... lamps are they!
Yes, at the local flea market. About 18" high by 12" square. Had oil burners inside. Presume you took off lids when lit. The 'Mirash' would have been an Indian restaurant, but not that local.

Bueatiful, Nice bunch of blossom, nicely isolated from the background by DOF. Nice blue in the background against the green of the leaves.

Low, seems cropped a bit too tight in the bottom right area. Fits the theme well and I like the duck not getting his feet wet. Hightlight from the sun reflecting off the water could have been tamed a bit with a polarising filter..

Match, not sure what is matching, the old boys in the background or the lateen at front, bike add clutter to the photo.

Music, Well that is different, I had to search google and found the answer.:whistle::whistle::whistle::whistle:

Musical - Nice shot, with good textures in the picture, but man i hate beans. :puke:

Hard - I like this. Nice colours in the stones and nice dof. My eyes are however struggling to find the focus. My guess is it is on the stones, but due to the stones being what they are it is difficult to see where the sharp focus is. Just my opinion. It is a well composed shot, with highlights and shadows all kept under control.

Musical :D, good idea for the theme and nicely captured.

Hard, nothing harder than diamond, another good take on the theme, I like the highlight on the back of the ring.

Nice take on the theme, good colours reflecting in the diamonds, but the focus appears just behind them. Well done 37 years ago.

Week 23 - Synthetic

Hauled out the other microscope for this one.


Recrystallised Ascorbic Acid - Synthetic Vitamin C

by David M Bloor, on Flickr

Zeiss x10 objective, x5 Projection eyepiece onto Canon 450D body.

Colours are result of having crossed polarising filters above and below sample and a 1/4 wavelength plate above to depolarise and tint the light that had been rotated by the crystals.

Thought you`d get your shot in quickly. Not for me though David as none of it is in focus.
Colourful shot though.
Actually the crystals ARE in focus, however the colours are produced by recombination of refracted light in the top polarizer which is not in the same focal plane, hence the colours always blur.

It's a good abstract for me, I though it was fabric when I first saw it, really interesting photo and top marks for technical prowess!

Creature - Wow, that's a super cool technical shot. Thanks for the explanation otherwise I would not have a clue what I was looking at.

Synthetic - I must say it's another good shot but not really for me. It's technically a great shot, I'm just struggling to find any sort of focal point. My eyes seem just to dart over without really settling on anything. But it is a cool picture.

Music/Musical - sadly this image isn't working for me.
Hard - wow first date to proposal in 4 days thats pretty quick, cant get much harder than a nice Diamond stone. A good idea for the theme however i find the highlight on the back of the ring a distraction, I do like the composition of the image I wounder if focus on the stones could be improved upon.
Creatures - excellent take on the theme and impressive detail.
Synthetic - a very clever take on the theme like the abstract look of it.

Creatures, not an Image that does it for me, but I understand how much equipment and technique used to create it

Synthectic, as above for me again.
