Challenge: Anything But Landscape (Advanced Editing VII)

Lens: Nikon AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8D
Location: home
Date: Jul 7, 2008
Aperture: f/16
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/180

Definitely not a landscape. Not even taken outdoors, although the leaf and snail came from there originally. One thing I learned about snails on this shoot is that their eyes are the black dots at the end of the antennae.

Post challenge:

Cool! Another ribbon! Just when I was thinking I'd never win another. Thanks, everyone!

This was a studio shot. I taped a leaf over the top of a lens hood and collected a bucket of snails from the garden. Very little post processing, just a bit of vignetting both top and bottom, and turned the saturation up to 11.

Whats really great about this shot is that you have the colors and the setup of a landscape; even a nice object positioned there. Very well done, Nice work.

Awesome! That is a flawless macro, and a snail is a great subject that you don't see every day. CONGRATULATIONS!

Top notch macro shot. Great details. Love the background, the leaf and the droplets. Composition cannot get any better than this, I suppose. My favourite here.

Great colours. Could you have a good macro without water droplets? 8

Tremendous picture - great detail and colour.

The blue could possibly have been a little punchier, but it really isn't an issue.

i like the shallow DOF, but my eyes keep coming back to the water drops instead of the snail for some reason

Very cool shot. Technically perfect. Great colors. And best of all, a different subject that you don't see much of on this site.

This may well be my favorite. I love the colors/contrast, and it feels like its clear and blurred in all the right places. :) An all-around great photo.
