Another version

I like this shell better, especially since the spiral nature of the shell echoes the round form of the magnifying glass. I'm now beginning to use a stepladder — crossing the line from easy-peasy shots to photos requiring (gasp!) a bit more work. Shallow depth of field reigns by my using f/1.8 on a 50mm macro lens. I sliced open a finger on my left hand the other day in a horrible kitchen "malfunction." Luckily I can click the shutter with my right . . . ©Carol Leigh

I prefer this one. My eyes move more naturally though it.

I like this one better as well. I can see the book better and as you noted, the repeating pattern in the shell and the magnifying glass work better than the metal shell did. Somehow the textures of shell, book and background work well together. Janet
