2. Characterized by delicacy of form. Vague or insubstantial
3. Delicately hazy

Synonyms: gossamer, translucent, sheer, airy, of fine texture, transparent, ethereal.

The word diaphanous was introduced to me by my brother. He has the unique ability to create a picture with words.
Our Pbase friends create pictures with a thousand words.

I would first like to thank Donutrun for diving in and posting the first photograph in a somewhat difficult theme.

I had never heard of the word "diaphanous" until this contest began. Judging from all the wonderful photos, "diaphanous" is a beautifully delicate word indeed.

Congratulations to Cocameli as well... also very happy to be selected in 2nd place... this topic encouraged my wife and I to try some different shots to fit the theme

To get the lighting inside, I cut a hole in a black card and set it over a lamp... this allowed the light to shine up inside the shell... I removed the hole using PS to get the final image... no other post processing involved... just sharpening for the web... very tempted to make a large print of this one...

Thanks for the encouragement and look forward to the next topic...
