Entry for Click

This was not exactly what I had in mind for the picture - but since the time is up - the better one in the lot goes to the CLICK metal event hosted by Jai and Bee at Jugalbandi. I didnt use any software for getting the color variation on the fork. I heated the fork and allowed it to cool to get that bluish tinge. Though I like the yellow background of the second picture- it isnt as sharp as the first one.
