Nice, I like it!
But remember to clean away the dust first b4 you shoot.
See the white specks?
Haha thanks ortega!! Wow very observant!! :bigeyes: Din notice them there till u point out..hehe. Actually i'm not sure if those are dust, could be just some anomaly resulting from sharpening. I've seen a couple of those in my photos with mainly black bkground after applying USM.

It is a occupational hazard.

it is dust or dirt, USM will normally enhance it and make it clearer.
A black particle on a light bg is not so easy to see, but a white particle on a dark bg stands out. So inverting the image also makes it more visible.

hehe thanks eikin! Yup it was inverted in PS. :) Hehe yeah a lighted bulb is possible too...hee but think for now don't want to mess around with wires just yet. And i guess shooting a lighted bulb this size is kinda blinding... :bsmilie:
