Vermiphobia       ©2014 Mepo
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       9th place, 81 points
1/4s, f3.6, ISO 100, ?, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adj brightness & contrast.
Add vignette and a bit of salt after the photo was taken.
      Extra Info: Vermiphobia - fear of earth worms.

The thought of eating worms is rather shocking for some. However, these creatures are a staple in diets around the world. They’re valued for their protein content, which is higher – pound for pound – than any animal product.

If you feel a little strange looking at this, you might have vermiphobia. My apologies if it upsets you.

    To answer your questions. Yes I did eat the salad afterwards and the salt just livens the worms up a bit so they wriggle more on the way down :-)

    I would have gotten even closer to the worms.

    Great photo. Makes me squirm. I hope the salt helped!

    Very good choice of subject! I think the composition is well done. The lighting seems a bit dull though.

Wouldn't the salt kill the worms? Did you eat this salad?

    Nicely shot, but doesn't really suggest the phobia, except to someone who already has it. In some cultures, the photo might be seen as an attractive serving suggestion.

    Nicely crafted image on theme but I would have like to have seen less clutter at the top of the image

    This is sooo gross - really well done - and I may never eat salad again. Technically well shot and right on theme.

    Gross! But the shot was done well. Great worm for fishing but I don't know about having them in my salad.
