Challenge: Anything But Landscape (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro for Nikon
Location: Melbourne Australia
Date: Jul 14, 2008
Aperture: F2.8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/160
Galleries: Abstract, Macro
Date Uploaded: Jul 13, 2008

The Image: A mushroom over some lime green jelly. Macro Lens. I wanted to get different layers and textures, and hopefully people will find this pleasing to the eye.

The Edit: Mainly levels, d and b, noise reduction, some sharpening and blurring. I selectively desaturated to b and w for a bit of tinting.

The Prediction: I think this might be below 6

Post: well, I was off in my prediction again...

I like the fact that people didn't know what it was. Thanks everyone.

This is so cool, I love the colours from the jelly, had no idea during the challenge what the green was but guessed the mushroom. There is so much to look at in this with the detail in the mushroom and the air bubbles. As someone else mentioned I could also see this as a poster.

You are good at underestimating your score by about .6 to 1.0. :)

Really great shot, Enzo. I love the different textures, especially the tiny blue bubbles. I could imagine this looking even more stunning hanging as a huge print in a modern living room.

Fascinating! I really like the colors and textures and patterns. I wish the center were more focused.

Very cool, and I have no idea what it is. Almost looks like an eye. I love the colors and the detail is great. Now what is it!

Let me guess...an upside-down mushroom cap in soapy water...? Very interesting abstract.

I'm still trying to figure out what this is. It looks like an eyeball, but it could be something else. It's definitely abstract. 7

Superb abstract - is it a mushroom in a glass of some sort? Really good colours and composition, this should do very well - 8
