Vibrant Hills




Vibrant Hills
A snail rests on a log covered with some fungal growth. I reckon these snails feed on the fungus since we found quite a few around it. 1st of the series of a few colorful images we got experimenting with light on the amazingly vibrant spores ! Nature is Magical !

This is magical to say the least! Looking forward to rest of the images in the series. Ensure the highest quality while making an image like this so that you can print very large. I would not push ISO far too much unless noise characteristics are extremely good (which I doubt) and I would religiously mount the camera on tripod and would not like to crop at all. This is where web presentation and large files/use cases for prints differ. I hope this practical point helps (even if it constrains your photographic process).

Looks like light painting with different colors.

This is wonderful to say the least! Colours and contours work really well. Agree with Ganesh. TFS

Excellent work, Prathamesh. For me even without the snail this would've worked. Waiting for rest of the images.

Thanks @Tapan
Thanks @Ganesh ! Yes I made it a point to not crop my images and make sure they are composed right on field. The ISO is pretty low in these, would not be more than 500 in any image.
Thanks @Karthik
Thanks @Adithya
Thanks @Madhav
Thanks @Sarthak
Thanks @Prashanth
Thanks @Raviprakash

Good to know! I wanted to ensure they retain this same wonderful quality if we see in its original size..

Beautifully captured the phenomenon!, Prathamesh. I liked this more.
Just for knowledge, have you use multi-coloured light source?

Thanks @Nevil, No I have not used colored light source, this is only a single Flashlight fired from behind the spores. I observed that even the slightest deviation from the sweet spot led to not so vibrant colors and if you hit it right, the colors would come in a larger spectrum.
Thanks @Sacha.

Top class, Out of the Box kind of image this is. Beautifully conceptualised and executed, the noise actually adds to the image. Thanks for sharing
