After seeing all the other entries, I wasn't sure I should even put mine up, but I figured it was worth it just to share.  Smiley  I wasn't sure which of my pics to enter, but I finally decided on this guy.  I took the image on my porch just after it rained.  I wanted to try and make it look like one of those "through-the-viewfinder" images, which are taken with a digital camera pointed through an old camera.  I don't have the old camera, but I do have photoshop, lol.  I upped the saturation and contrasts and added some filters and tried to age the image just a bit.  It's much brighter than a TTV image, probably, but I really liked how it came out.

Here it is, please click for a link to a fullview:

Oh, and after you click it for a full view, you may have to click the image to get it to enlarge.  You do with explorer.  The little magnifying glass icon will pop up if you hover over it.  Wink
The other two i couldn't choose between were dandylions, lol.

This is really cool. I love the closeup detail below the snail, and how you can see that its body is textured.  Plus, he's totally cute. Wink
