Have you noticed how the majority of macro subjects are flowers or insects?
I was taking a photo of a lettuce for someone the other day and was surprised at how beautiful the leaves looked. Maybe I was photographing too much veg that day, but I reckon this is up there with many flowers!
Ahem, anyway, nothing special about the equipment or setup - a standard kit lens stopped down to f18, natural store lighting and only a slight adjustment to the Levels in Photoshop to ensure the background material turned completely black. So now allow me to present, veg in space!
