Excellent work Yousef, the antenna image is amazing! Love the detail.

The weevil is so clean, what did you do to prepare it, it looks spotless!

Congratulations, Yousef, for winning the Administrators Appreciation Award.
Rik chose wise you are an excellent macrophotographer, and all your shots show a consistent high level of quality.
Some members of the forum raise the bar quite high and you are one of them.

Hi Robert,
Not all my subjects are clean in usual. with this one, it was an easy task luckily since there was almost no hairs involved here -which I hate the most!- therefore a quich water cleaning should do most of the job & the rest can be handled with Photoshop or any smiliar editing softwares.

Somehow I missed these photos during the time they were originally posted, but fortunately I was made aware of them due to the Administrators Award for February. Congratulations for this winning this well-deserved award.

I am quite overwhelmed at the quality of the lighting as well as the technical quality and beauty of the stacked images. To me, these photos go far beyond what can be accomplished by most macro photographers. The lighting, the detail, and the overall aesthetic appeal of these photos are incredible in my opinion.

Thank you so very much for creating these photos and for sharing them with this forum.
