Bynx, I think it counts. What are some tips for doing something like that? Do you use any additional lighting?
I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand

Bynx, you captured some great shapes! I like the way you drip with a contrasting color. And these images (with the exception of the last) do not show the excessive noise that I see so often in your images. I think it usually results from raising the exposure. At any rate, nice job on 1-3!

I have Noiseware Pro for the PC however, Im using a Mac which doesnt help me a bit. If I can get it to work on my Mac I would be very pleased.

Bynx, Nice images. Beautiful colours.
Have you tried Neatimage?
It runs in Mac and it has a free version. The free version is not good in terms of workflow (no batch options and some other things are disabled) but it can clean up images really nicely. Here is what your image through neatimage would look like:
// Nikkor 70-300 f/4-5.6 VR // Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8
// Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 ...// Nikon SB-600
// Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6......// Nikon Series E 135 mm f/2.8
// Kiron 105 f/2.8 Macro....// Manfrotto 190XPROB + 488RC4
// Nikkor 35 f/1.8..........// Sigma 500 mm f/8

Thanks for pointing me back in the right direction. Funny thing is the second and third from the last posts in that thread were mine. It was after I had my camera for a few weeks. Pretty feeble shots. Sure is a difference in what I know I am able to take now. I will remove them here and repost there. Looking through all the thread again and I realize it was your work that inspired me to try this. Thanks again.

here is a pic of some christmas decorations that recently went up at my house. dont have the exif data on hand but I really like this shot. it is a candle set on a plate with clear stones and snow flakes for decoration. picasa was used for selective B&W, straightening, sharpening and cropping
