[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
my camera doesn't have a hot-shoe so micro photography with built-in flash is impossible? no it is possible, all u need is a piece of paper. see workshop for better understanding where i tranformed a piece of paper into a diffuser.

it worked quite well i guess, i saw these sewing accessories on ironing stand which was lying near the wall, i dragged the stand couple of feet away from the wall and took few shots.

pp = original crop, resized and usm

Hi Mehmood
the diagonal composition of this workd very well and the diffuser is a most clever device.
Where I am not so comfortable is in your choice of colours. To work with your blue and yellow, I am thinking that you red needs to be a little more pastel. But that is just my humble opinion from my Euro-centric point of view :)
Great composition, excellent sharpness and details

Hi Basheer Nice idea and obviously a perfect capture....As Always
