Writing Implements

Raided my son's old art box for today's entry for the Thursday challenge. As usual, it was
a five minute job during my lunch break. Tried felt tipped pens but I prefer these colouring
pencils although it would have been better if I'd time to pare the nibs. As the image was a bit
dull, I played around with it in Capture NX2 - not sure if it works or not.

Nikon D90
1/250s f/3.3 at 50.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

definitely works... not sharpening them gives this a well-used feeling

It works very well - even better with the worn down nibs.

I love those colors. I've always wanted to do this but never managed it. This image turned out beautifully!

The tones look nice & strong so I think your use of NX2 worked perfectly
