  #191 Rocks Star!
Entry 15 of 28
   
 
Quartz       ©2017 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       15th place, 46 points
1/5s, f5.6, ISO 320, 40mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped and straightened; adjusted tone; increased saturation; cloned out dust spec; smoothed out uneven background colors; sharpened; resized       Extra Info: This is a piece of quartz about 4" (10cm) long, with lots of inclusions. It always reminded me of some cosmic event. I lit it from below to bring out the inclusions and the clarity of the quartz.

    You've done an excellent job of lighting and photographing this piece. The stone has a lovely vitality to it.
