Polka Dots by o-kaykay Polka Dots by o-kaykay
My entry for `hellfirediva's Beauty in Everyday Objects contest.
I used my hairbrush as the subject (the bristles are 1/2 inch long) and took the photo using the reverse lens technique.

I won 3rd place! :excited: :winner: :trophy:

Before I read the description, I've thinking that this was a flower or something like that :O
How suprising I was when i saw that it is a hairbrush :o

Nice shot, really :clap:

great picture!
noticed the incredible focus right away and thought 'damn she must have used a insane aperture for that'
and my god, 1,0?? what lens did you use? :lol: :eager:
First time I've seen a f/1,0 in action :D
Congratulations on the third place! ;)

Thanks very much! I used a nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens in reverse. It actually was shot at something closer to f/5.0 but because the lens was reversed it didn't read the aperture. :aww:
