    Set by Alf - "I was thinking of something I'm not used to do, to see what others can teach in the challenge. So the choice is "Body Parts" - human, mechanical, or otherwise."

    XRay not taken by me but of me, and I took one of the XRay and did some post processing to get the look I was happy with.

    Fuji X100, processed using Flare. Don't like the frame but it's too fiddly to change now!

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Pretty sure they're not REAL body parts, but a fine simulation. Definitely reminded of this shot by Bill's photo above:

    Don - I'll honor your wish, but good heavens, why NOT? Its such a strong and beautiful image. I remember its impact from the first time I checked out your website many months back and have seen it a number of times since. I know its not a recent work, but its among my favorites...

    ....thanks ... I am in support of the members and the efforts everyone makes around here.
    I made this image with a different intent than the WC.
    Therefore, I support the WC but not as an image for voting.
    You know that issue I have with Intent...
