I really like the second picture. Not sure I can articulate why. But it desided to get nasty here with the weather, so taking indoor macro shots looks like the ticket ;-)

You know I kinda like that pin. You have a way in composing these kind of photos Doug, although the pin does look a bit hot. Common everyday things, hmm...should give us all something to think about eh? :D

Thanks for the comments fellas...the shot was a little hot on the pin. I have to work on this unnatural lighting (like changing the lighting selection in the settings) The lighting was one of those clip-on halogen lights we have on the work desk. The pin is clear and the light was reflecting through it and reflecting off the wood also. There is probably some chromatic apparition showing because I am pushing the limit on this lens & camera on these shots , I see some green around the other buttons on the calculator if that is what you mean Cyclops. have a good one :wink:

Hi Doug

If you have photoshop, Auto Colour will fix the problem...

Thanks Steve. I started out using PaintShop Pro but I do have PhotoShop Elements which I hardly ever use. I always tell myself "start using it" :roll:

Yes Photoshop elements has a neat 'color cast' setting which is easy to use. Its found in Enhance>Color>Color Cast.

Good job Doug! BTW, Im all in favour of refamiliarising people with everyday objects.
