  1. Stephen,

    thank you sharing all of this wealth of information with the rest of us. It really is invaluable. I appreciate your exploring spirit and the lack of rigidity; it is really a priviledge to share this journey of discoveries. Many thanks again, maro

  2. I was looking for more information on zone plate photograhpy and stumbled upon this series. The images you have posted here leave me speechless.

    I am particularly entranced by the last image. I like how the center section frames that one branch and the two over-exposed sections on either side of that pop out at you but don’t overwhelm your attention. The image makes my focus bounce around a lot and keeps me intreagued. I really love the painterly aspect all these images portray too.

    Stunning.
