I collect stones. This is just a macro of one of them, a shell fossil cut and polished.

Handheld the shell, lit with ambient light in the display case and a LightsphereII.

Levels, desaturate, a small bit of healing for dust, sharpen, NN, Dodge, size for web
thats it in a nutshell, all of the above expcept for healing played with for the sake of effect and messing around....

Sumbitting for the sake of submitting and keeping my average under a 5.5. LOL

great idea, but would have liked to have seen the left side to show the full swirl and brought the focus to the centre of the swirl. The swirl looks great off centered. But i really do like this photo a lot. Good Job!

Interesting choice for a square. It almost has a slimey appearance.

Out of focus I think. Would be good to see it from a slightly different angle. 5

I am inclined to love this sort of photo, science major and all, but there is just a little too little in focus. Keep shooting. You'll do well here.
