Ok, no circles in the picture or the actual item, but they are implied (does that count?).

I'm not fully happy, maybe 80% so will have another go tomorrow. It's a reverse lens jobbie.

I think part of what may be bothering you is that it has no center of interest. You need something more in it. A flea, mayhap?

What's a sanding wheel, Pickles? Really nice texture. I don't mind that there's no center of interest - this makes an excellent line design, i think. And it's part of a circle, right? So that would count.

It's a little disc made up of pieces of sandpaper which radiate out from the centre. You put it in your drill and, well sand stuff. :-)

It wasn't flat and with the shallow DOF I was getting some parts (bottom left and right for example) are out of focus. It needed to be moved away from the camera .5-1mm because the top fuzzy bits are out of focus. There is part of the wheel on the right which I should have got rid of (no editing apart from crop and resize). I want to turn the gaps black. If possible I want to show more of the wheel which should show more curves.

It's starting to sound like I shouldn't have posted it. :-)

We'll happily watch you progress through the great sanding wheel project.:-)
