Medical Mushrooms.

I'm guessing this particular mushroom cannot be used medically, and someone will correct me, but I don't care, it makes for a good book :-p

The author in the lower right is the creator of penicillin. A drug I'm am near lethally allergic too, but has saved so many lives around the world.

I came up with this design by basing it off some textbook covers I looked at. This multi color with some borders seemed like something I could accomplish. The photo is a shot I took, then edited to add the light coming from the top. Hopefully that doesn't look too "fake."

I'm betting this will be a very high scoring challenge, and this entry will fall somewhere in the middle.


Wow! Made it to the top 5! Crazy!

I actually had a score stay above 7...until vote 90. That vote hurt.

A perfect example of use of the expert rules, just a few subtle rays of light make for an incredibly beautiful macro shot! Congrats on the nice finish.

Fleming really needs to lay off the mushrooms, at least while he's writing. Chapter 8 is just GOD written over and over again for 10 pages.
