Default A Snail's Pace

Found a very small snail - about 1/4 inch across. "Sleeping" in a rotting log.

Sony A55 - Sigma 105mm macro

The shape stood out more than anything - as I was digging I noticed something round in the moss and wood.

Camera: SONY
Model: SLT-A55V
ISO: 320
Exposure: 1/160 sec
Aperture: 8.0
Focal Length: 105mm
Flash Used: No

WB - Auto
Exp Comp -.3

I also do just a bit of post processing mainly using "levels" for color intensity.

The Sony A55 is set on Vivid with Saturation +1 Sharpness +2 and Contrast 0

I used Zoner 13 Photo Studio Pro 13 for the tweaking.

Thanks Saly - I should have brought my tripod but I had the grand kids with me so it was a rush job.
