Orange Fungus

Here is another of my last Canon 10D images. It's an orange fungus at Maclay
Gardens SP in Tallahassee, FL.

http://www.thelightsrightstudio.com/...b_550pixel.jpg

This was a 1 second exposure at f/18 to get plenty of DOF. I shot
at 100 ISO and exposed to the right to minimize noise. I used mirror
lock-up for added sharpness.

Canon 180mm "L" macro lens. 1:1 reproduction ratio with narrower FOV
from the 1.6x cropping factor.

I used two-pass sharpening technique with actions from my TLR
Sharpening Toolkit.

http://www.thelightsrightstudio.com/...ingToolkit.htm

The first round was 6 pixel Highpass Sharpening with a luminosity
mask to restore sharpness lost during digital capture.

The second round was output sharpening. I used settings to enhance
contrast. 20, 10, 0.

The only other adjustment I made outside of ACR II was a
Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. In ACR II, I adjusted the White Balance to
warm the image a bit and the shadows a bit.

Comments are welcome!

Cheers,

Mitch

My 2 cents

I think you are a wonderful photographer! And this is a gorgeous image, perfect exposure and DOF. One thing about it is bugging me though: I personally find the texture of the background a distraction from the mushroom. Can you crop in real tight to the fungus and re-post for comparison? I would just like to see the difference.....

Thanks!
