    This isn't an original idea, but I wanted to have a go at it just as a technical exercise. It's not particularly difficult to do, but not quite as easy as you would think.

    Not so easy to clean either, it seems!

    I saw a similar image on Facebook this week, captioned with the words 'This reminds me of every rap video made in the 90s ever'. Which isn't all that far from the truth. Personally I think it's a lot of fun to make macro images of things reflected in a cheese grater - keeps me amused for ages.

    I think you are seeing reflections, not bits!

    yes, I saw something similar on Twitter, saying it looked like a nightclub. I actually took this on a 10-20mm lens. I did try my macro lens, but it's 90mm so was just a bit awkward.

    yep, it's definitely clean. There may be one or two stray fibres from the pot scrubber used to lean it though.

    It's far shinier inside than mine is - and less tatty in the bargain...:rolleyes::D

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    And so to the shot: I think with f22, you could probably have focused 1/3 way down the thing and had the depth carry to the end? Looks to me like the focus is on the handle at the far end.
