Thanks for the votes for my quick effort of the inside of s circular cheese grater processed in Topaz and then a twirl distort added in photoshop. Took a few goes to get the degree of twirl and style I liked but nowhere near the effort of H`s shot which I voted for.
I`ll get a theme up later or tomorrow.Mind is blank with all this lockdown.

Well done Jinky, loved your photo and fitted the brief perfectly.
My cheese grater photo didn't have quite the same wow factor.

Well done Paul. Glad to see some people can still afford Photoshop! I've cancelled my sub, hardly ever used it and I still can't get on with Lightroom.

I`m using version cs6 student edition that was just about the last freestanding version you could get. Using LR3.4 when I do use that for the same reason. Never subscribed.

I never managed to afford a version of freestanding Photoshop, you're very fortunate ;) I'm using Affinity and On1 at the moment. Affinity is missing a few PS features, but has some unique ones of it's own. The main gripe is that macros are very poor in Affinity. But I never really used those much in PS when I had it. I still have a licence for LR 4.4, but ti doesn't understand the RAW files from my bridge camera.

Yes I`ve the same problem re: raws for my Fuji camera but  luckily Capture One do a free Fuji version that does raw edits and there`s a free Fuji raw programme too. That said I rarely shoot raw with my fuji as I love the jpegs I`ve tweaked out of it so much. The old cs and lr are ok for my Nikon d700  on the rare occasion I use it.
