Crab Constellation (9-2-09 6438v7) is a new version of one of my oldest photos. (Not surprising I'd see a crab of sorts in it, given my wonky mood.) I have two shots of this wide open rose, and many versions of both. They were taken with my first camera that had a much lower pixel count so they readily begin to degrade as I fool with them. But that doesn't stop me. Now that I have Photoshop I fall into thinking I can "fix" anything by twisting or fudging in some way. Which of course I can't. But at least I have fun trying. "Crab Constellation" is an example of one that threatened to degrade, by the way, which stopped me short at this not fully satisfactory version. Knowing me, I'm sure I'll go back some other time to the original pic and try again.
