    Yes, I am not sure if it's a layer of bronze or if it's rusting or what. It is really interesting and beautiful but it doesn't appear to be anodization. Steel is not anodized and it's not titanium.
    The trit colors are so very pleasing on this one! I picked them myself and feel they are perfect.

    Yes, you chose them excellently.

    Yitsan told me that the effect is achieved with heat treatment which I think he called "heat anodization"
    I don't know if that's the correct technical term though.
    Bottom line is that its a very unique and beautiful result.

    The bronze in colour is cause by different heat being applied during the treatment stage. It is very difficult to control the heat during this process which is why it results in different colours of the finishing. This is what I understand but I do not have experience with working on the damascus steel...I just appreciate work of art

    I wasn't using a black light. I was using a little Zebralight H502D for some fill. I think the purple is from the sunset.

    Very good! Of course, I'm not sure it's possible to take a bad picture of a Tain light.

    That's a great looking picture Cary! All the trit color schemes contrast quite nicely, and I like how you utilized depth-of-field.

    Really nice picture. I like the way the rough concrete contrasts with the smooth metal.
