Sands of Time

Tim set me the challenge of using my macro extension tubes to create an abstract, and this is a second offering.

This was not easy to set up, I used all three tubes and focussing was difficult, getting the light right and shutter speed took quite a bit of faffing.

 This is also for FOR2020 using the  props I chose earlier on in the week.  It’s a glass timer, it takes 3.5 minuts for the iron filings to flow through

I've also made it a fourer as Fleetwood Mac did a song and there's an abstract challenge on!!

You have the patience of a saint Jackie - but what a great result! Def worth it

Like the effect in the centre where the cinched in part of the hour glass captures the different light.

That turned out well. The more tubes you use, the harder the lighting and focus is. Someone at my local camera club takes an old milk jug and cuts a hole in it for the lens, and uses that as a flash diffuser for macro lighting.

You did an amazing job with this Jackie!

So well focused. And it does make an intriguing abstract.

Well done for both themes/challenges. I like how I can see the textures of the iron filings.

Hi Jackie, i thought of this challenge for you to play around with camera functions you might not use much, take the same scene using several of the custom image settings before a simple conversion to black and white in post processing , and see what difference it makes , post your favorite.

@kali66 oh my Kali, you work so hard on my challenges, had no idea my camera could do this sort of thing!! Thank you, I'll play on my day off. I'll think of something original for you asap

Makes a wonderful abstract and looks like it means time (an abstract concept). I think it works for all 4 challenges so you really had brain fitness for this one.
