    It's actually a curved surface... the focus line runs from bottom-left to upper-right (near middle of frame). Not my best shot, I know... it was an ashtray cylinder thingy.

    I honestly have no idea how to get a non-trivial angle on a surface like that headscratch.gif
    Oh well, I'm sure you'll find more stones around :-) :):

    I think I only saw a bigger one in Paris, Fr., in a very modernist area called La Défense. That one was like 3 stories high - just one thumb, realistic colors, nothing else (yak)...

    Cool stone! :):

    Welcome to the class!

    No such thing as too late to go shoot whatever (unless you're a wedding photog :-)

    Nice pebbles! And tilting the camera just a tad lower would make them great pebbles, IMHO:-)

    Bring some more (pebble castle? pebble mosaic? pebbles in the ocean? you name it:-). thumb.gif

    Thanks Nikolai, for the welcome. I meant apologies for skipping the first three classes. However I will see if I can get my grades up. :D
