Airplanes and Marbles

The marbles were taken with the SMC Pentax-F 35-70mm and 50mm/1.7. The airplane photo's taken with the SMC Pentax-F 70-210MM.

Thanks for looking

Great series. I love that 3rd marble shot. I suspect it would be a very popular desktop wallpaper if you put it out there.

Very nice series, like the second marble shot and the last aircraft but they are all good.

Very nice set of images here too. The details in the middle marble is striking and the colour is superb!

Those marble shots are great!! I can't pick a favorite but leaning toward #2 or #3. I love the colors in them and your background works for all of them. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks! It would work as a desktop if you have a small desktop like me 1024 x768. I have the freebie flickr account and that is the largest size you can upload with the free account.

Appreciate it. Sometimes I start messing around with processing and wind up with a keeper.

Yes, I have a soft spot for airplanes. A clever design with the body actually providing lift. Here is a pict I took of its larger civilian sister, the shorts 360.
