I would have been in trouble with that shot if the mandate was
curvacious. Yes I should have bumped the ISO.

Nope. The main curves were caused by rotating the camera. Note the
exposure. It was hand held. I did use a slight application of the spiral
filter to curve the curves. And, as I explained previously, I did a
color reversal on part of the image.

Thank you. I should tone down part of the background on the left.

I was also playing with the 28 - 300 lens with a 1.4 tele-converter. If
I had used a sharper lens, such as my 70-200, I would have had a better
image. But that's one of the purposes of the exercise; to learn
capabilities of equipment, and how to work around them.
