This shot is my contribution to Leanne Cole’s and Laura Macky’s Mono Madness where all of the images entered will be shown on Leanne’s Blog
This picture came about unexpectedly. I was setting up a still life shot with some snail shells and this snail came alive and started moving. I had to move the camera quick as the snail moved around my set up, really I was spraying and praying. There were not many worthwhile shots after he had gone back in his shell. With this shot I love his eye looking around really sharp while everything else is little softer.
I processed the image in lightroom converting it to black and white and then used colour effects to add some microcontrast and vignette.
