She Sells Sea Shells


I have been wanting to get a nice inside shot of this shell for months!
And I finally got one...

Sea shell macro 2


I used my macro lens to get this shot. It was maxed out at 300mm and I had to crop to get the shell to fill the frame! I ran PW's Boost action and then PW's Slight Sharpen action, which I overdid. I should have pulled that back a bit...oh well, live and learn!
