Challenge: Puzzle Macro (Basic Editing)
Collection: Challenge Entries
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: London, UK
Date: Jun 19, 2007
Aperture: F/2.8

Shutter: 1/125th sec
Galleries: Abstract, Macro

Canon 100/2.8 with reversed 50/1.8 on an adapter ring to get that lovely 2:1 macro :D

In case you can't guess what it is, the macro ratio should give a clue as to the small scale... it's a comb!

Edit: Convert from RAW using auto settings (I'm lazy), resize to 640, convert to mono using the green channel, mess with the levels to deep the shadow and midtones, sharpen lots, save as JPEG.

----- POST CHALLENGE -----

Only one successful guess (congrats to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' robinssong!), out of 20 attempts? Looks like my puzzle was just too tricky for most of you :o) For the curious, here's a zoomed-out view of what I shot:

very interesting. I think there is too much noise for my taste, but I love the lighting.

This sort of looks like glass but then again it looks like it has fibers in it. It's a bit grainy and not very sharp so it's hard to tell.

This is lovely, I'd guess something polystyrene but it doesn't matter. It's a lovely restful shot, the subtle colour is beautiful.

really don't know but there are parts that look like hair so I wanted to guess hand but the lines are to angular for that so I'm not sure.
