Default close up contrast!!!

Shot at- 1/20 f~28 75mm Iso 200 2 modeling lights diffused, the blurry part of this bit is actually closer to the lens , but focused on the back part... a contrast between front and back... I hope..

Not only is this a great photo, Dale, but I just spent a long time staring at it, trying to figure out how in heck you did it! If the blurred part is actually closer, how come it isn't blocking part of the in-focus and farther-away part? :shock:

I wondered that, too, Barbara, and at first thought it was altered post-camera. But perhaps the forefront element is made of a material much more translucent than the metal of the smaller ring. If you look closely, it almost looks like it could be a thin plastic bubble-blowing type loop, and it does look like it is against the smaller ring. If you look very, very closely. And scrunch your eyes. That is neat.
