I think this is a coiled Bishop's crook - waiting to strike at sinners!
Samarth: lol, thanks chris... its a fork waiting to pierce the swordfish about to land up in front of me...

Aptly titled, Photosam...a quick glance at the thumb certainly gave that impression.

You excellent saturation and B&W conversion work seems to have really brought out textures...great stuff!
Samarth: thanks a lot ray...

I too thought it was a snake from the thumbnail. The converging lines make the composition work giving a structure for your interesting choice for a limited depth of field.
Samarth: thanks a lot... i was actually thinking of keeping in the fork head to give an extended DOF but decided the shot had more impact this way...
Very fine. Thought it really was a snake in the thumb.
Samarth: thanks ian...

The processing matches the subject matter perfectly. It's a shame that the scroll in the foreground is fuzzy. It is still a great shot, but with that in focus it would be phenomenal.
Samarth: agreed 100%... thanks martin...
