Life in a Rainforest Water Droplet
Lens: Pentax 100mm Macro Camera: K10D Photo Location: West Coast Tasmania ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: JulesJ, 01-09-2012, 09:07 PM

I took this in the rainforest, in the Wild Rivers World Heritage National Park on the West Coast of Tasmania. When I looked at the image on my computer I was surprised to see a minature ecosystem in the water droplet that is repeatedly refreshed by the constant rainfall.

Thanks! Not much processing, just crop and slight adjustment with levels and auto contrast, all in CS5.
