    Nice and simple this month

    [​IMG]
    100mm | f/2.8 | 0.5sec | ISO-100

    Straightened, cropped, cloned out a few bits of muck, slight tweak with curves, reduced noise, subtle sharpen

    Embedded Exif is showing the picture was taken on 30/11/06 for some reason. EDIT but the information on the flickr exif page checks out

    Like this a lot also.

    Minor tweak would've been to reduce the amount of black at the top though.

    Good work!

    I like this a lot. Would help if the 2nd ring in the background was either fully in shot or fully out of shot though.
