    I like your spikey balls dak1b, oh man did I just say that!!! :thumbup:

    From the size you posted they look nice and sharp where they should be, comp is good and your gradient background works for me.

    I had a play and found that if you give the contrast a nudge up and also vibrancy and a tiny amount of unsharp mask it makes your balls pop a little more :p

    Im not busting your balls, Im just saying how I would do it. :lol:

    2nd shot doesn't do anything for me sorry.
