I want to see a bit of creativity, so lets have a little challenge here. Take anything you have on your work desk (in home, not a kitchen desk, not a living room desk... you got a point). You got 3 minutes to take some picture of anything thats on this desk. What you can come up with? But that doesnt mean you take some carving and put it on the desk. Someone works with eletronics, other works with cameras, lets see what most interesting you have there.

Rules>
1. No pp. I got enough of photoshop. Basic editing - cropping, white balance, saturation, or corol/bw can be used. You can also use everything your camera can offer.
2. One image is allowed. Post one image with the respect to forum rules. You can link to external bigger image if you want, but please consider what you see in the forum.
3. 1 week of waiting is i think enough. So, winner should tell next place (like work, car, forest, toilet... a place that everyone can go to so we can have a lot of photos here.)
4. We are all entusiasts here (it seems :D ) post a little info of setting you used to make a photo.

For a chit chat, i think a challenge-place theme could be made, but lets see how this challenge will turn out first.

So, this is what i came up with:

Image
Canon EOS 60D
Manual, ISO100, 1/25 s, f4.0, 28mm, Live view,
I cropped image, and as a black bacground i used my LCD monitor.
