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



This was a 1.3 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.

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 with boosts to Saturation and Lightness for the Greens. In ACR II, I adjusted the White Balance to warm the image a bit and the shadows a bit.

Comments are welcome!

Cheers,

Mitch
