The Head

The Head

The head of a wooden statuette that I brought back from Vanuatu. I wanted to accomplish three things with this shot.

  1. Use the low morning light
  2. Shoot and process in RAW only
  3. Shoot using my 150mm f2.8 Macro

So I placed the head on my porch in the light, set against the green of the trees behind and viola. Now I’m late for work…

RAW only – sharpening, shadow enhance, saturation.


  • Aperture: ƒ/2.8
  • Camera: NIKON D2X
  • Taken: 9 February, 2007

Well done!

You clicked the ‘+’! Well done you!

I’ve been wondering if anyone ever clicked that thing, now I know – thanks!
