Mike Cash from Kiryu, Japan

The vignette effect was exactly the right thing for this photo. Did you make it physically or was it in post-processing? (I'm finding the old film cameras I've been posting with lately have a tendency to do it all on their own, whether I want them to or not).

@Mike Cash: It was done in processing Mike. Just upped the shadows. Thank you!

Betsy Carson from Portland, United States

Great shot. I agree that the vignette makes it! Well, that and the color and the composition and the.....!

@Betsy Carson: Thanks Betsy. Didn't know that vignette was a photography term until you and Mike posted comments...

I like the subtle circle frame around the picture. It is as though the subjects of your shot are viewed from a microscope or some external apparatus of that sort.

@Sojourn: Thanks Sojourn.

nice use of vignetting

Evelyn from New Milford, United States

Hm, love the use of vignetting, but something in the composition wants to be different. Cool effect, though!
