The main idea for this picture came after a game of backgammon with a friend of mine. You know, there's allways someone who mysteriously has a better grip on the dices than others. Yeah i know, logic tells otherwise :D Anyways, this is the first piece with my Canon 5D. I'm using my trusty Canon 24-70mm f2.8L USM. The aperature is f/22 and the shutter is set at 2 sek. Im using ISO 50 with no flash. Well, as you have noticed, the egg has a supersmooth look. And that was my intention. The original picture got tuned up in photoshop cs2 to get that smooth, soothing look i was aiming for.

Tools of the trade: Canon 5D w/Canon 24-70mm f2.8L USM, Photoshop CS2, and a load of coffee :D
Time: 5 hours including shooting

Hope you guys like it :), i sure had fun making it
