Rotated 1CCW to align it to the guide lines in the centre of the web.

Cropped off the top and bottom to accentuate the area of interest IMO.

Increased saturation +15 to add a bit more bite, along with minor USM (50%, 10px, 0).

Finally added a little vignetting using Filter/Distort/LensCorrection +35 darken.

Just an idea :)

Hi Brian,
Here is another B&W version. I think this one is sharper. I don't know what I did to the other one. I like this one better.

All I did here was completely desaturate the colors, and then invert the "colors" in the image for a negative. Similar to what Evenlyn did, but not quite the same. :)

This is a closeup of what I believe to be the worm's head. I think it's the head because whenever he moved, he moved in the direction of this part of his body.

Hi Niek.. I'm glad you liked this picture so much. I posted this extra for you, and for anyone else who would like to learn more about how it was taken. I had to take my camera off of the tripod to get the shot, but at least this way you can see where I had the tripod in relation to the leaf (VERY close to it). I can't emphasize how bright the sun was that afternoon.. it was perfect.

I adjusted and played with the brightness and contrast of the image, until I reached something which I thought interesting enough and worthy enough to post here, as a comparison to the original image by Brian.

By decreasing the brightness and decreasing the contrast, the image is darker which I think suits the subject, and some details in the skull's shape become more noticeable.

brightness, contrast both down a bit. Richard-- I tried lowering the brightness of my photo as you suggested, but I don't like the results. Much detail in the grass and other bones around the edges have been lost because they are too dark. I don't think the skull in the original photo was too bright--parts of it were white, yes, but the skull was actually white. I used auto-levels before I posted the original, and as always played with it a bit myself to make sure it was okay -- but in the end, I used the auto-levels setting. If you think I made it too dark, or if you think you could better show me what you mean, please do a workshop so I can learn. Thanks much!

I finally realized what the Hue of a picture is! In most pictures, if you have a lot of colors, changing the hue doesn't really do anything useful. But in this picture, it was REALLY useful because almost all of the colors in the first picture were varied tones of blue. By changing the hue, I kept the balance between all of the different shades, but I changed the "master" blue color to a much more appropriate green color. I think this works much better. I also took Niek's advice for making a frame, and I like the new frame much better. Thanks again Niek!

- The funny thing is, the blue original photo wasn't edited at all! The tree really was that exact shade of blue when I took the picture! One thing my camera is GREAT at is keeping colors accurate.
