    Thanks Nick!
    I was comparing to my first attempt at the same thing with a Pentax K20D years earlier and well lets say, the NEX-6 was not very merciful in beating the K20D Well to be fair I think I only had the kit lens for the K20D but still is no match for a NEX camera of course. :D
    I love that creature. I took many pics but some have some glow on a corner that I have to try removing. I tried the usual Lasso and Fill content aware but it added stuff I did not want :)

    I added here my best one with the K20D after PPing too! Gotta love the NEX cameras :biggrin:

    I just tried to get very close to the glass or move around looking for angles but nothing special, just trial and error.
    Thanks! :)

    Me too! I always wanted to capture its beauty in a better way because they just like float there, like some alien creature...really does not even seem like something that belongs in this planet.
    Thanks! :)
