How Big Is It? (contest week 4)

This week, another 'directed' subject...macros. Any kind.

Last week's winner, chosen by the panel, is Sunsetstrip See Profile's fish tale...kudos to him.

Here are the rules

Try to keep the size limitations in mind.

OLYMPUS C4100Z,C4000Z
19mm 1/100th F8 ISO100

An early seventeenth century Spanish silver coin. This one was made with silver from Peruvian or Mexican mines. It weights 27.2 grams (0.959 ounces) of silver 930/1000 fine, and it was produced in such massive quantities that it became the international currency of its time. It's Spanish name is "peso de ocho" or "piastra". It was then translated into the Dutch "Taller", from where it became "Dollar".

My dissertation is all about the economc and political nightmares the large influx of these silver coins brought upon Spain.

I changed my mind...

I will use my Iceberry some other time.

This one WAS photoshopped the least bit, for cosmetic purposes. The black background IS real, and so is the lighting.

Enjoy

You may want to replace the whole black background, or to use the clone tool instead of the sludge/copy paste. The black patches on the bottom-center section and between the two pieces are very evident.

This is some honey drops on a sheet of paper.

f/8
1/2"
ISO100
Macro mode
2 stacked macro lenses
self-made studio box

I had to make a miniature lightbox/studio for this photo. I found these drops to be extremely reflective so I had to fix that for it to look half-decent.

First I found a small box, I then cut both of the sides out. Then, I had to line the box with 8.5x11 sheets of paper so that reflections were uniform and it was not ugly and did not absorb extra light. Then, I placed a white cloth around the back of the box to shine a light through. When that was finished I placed a sheet of paper with honey drops on it inside the box. Shined the light through and took the photos. Additional camera settings were: Center-Weighted Metering, Spot Focusing, Tungsten white balance. And some photoshop adjustments like sharpening and curves.

While I love macros, I don't see the reasoning since the picture will end up being something like 150x200 pixels (ruining the effect). Then again, I'm not much into this whole "contest" deal so I'll zip it

I'll try my hand at one of these... tachometer from a 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster.

Taken with an old Nikon Coolpix 900 1.3MP in macro mode. Getting a new Nikon in a few months I hope. Just waiting for the D100 prices to come down a bit more!

This is a glass of water in my Kitchen sink. Took several tries to get this right. I was impressed with this shot mainly because camera used was an Olympus D510 which is pretty much point and shoot. I enhanced the contrast and shading in PS but other than that it's original.
