And a fine little finial it is indeed. The finish suggest it was taken some time ago...perhaps as far back as yesterday. best...jf

Beautiful finial and excellent focus. I can see what you mean, drawn to the narrowest of focus. It's really beautiful and the tones and color are excellent as well.

Beautiful DOF. Wonderful curve and movement
in a textured atmosphere that looks aged and gritty and romantic.

A remarquable and exquisite play on textures here Larry. Fits so well this curved iron fence. Brings back memories of a past.

Yes I like the depth as well and you can see the specks so well you could count them - the curvature and method of capture complete this..very cool Larry
