This lichen is growing all over a young Chinese Witch Hazel tree, protected by some huge camellia bushes, on a hillside that's always in deep shade. Brought a cardboard w/me for BG white & held it behind the twig as I shot. The small (1/2-in) 'leaves' of lichen are light grey, w/little black whiskers. The 'eyes' & sticking-out 'tongue' on the other lichen-covered twig were serendipity. Post-processed w/Levels & Curves.

I love this. Especially the light coming from the right, it's so warm. It looks like someone looking at the lichen, a sort of puzzled look, like, "what is that stuff?". Love the little hairs sticking out. ~9

I don't get the "Light on White" and I think I see two light sources of clashing temperatures, maybe sunlight and an ordinary tungsten outside light?

Some detail in the background would help this subject settle in the frame better. Yes, I see the "face" in the lichen...doesn't compel much interest however.
