But the other day, I jammed the lens right up against the glass, ignored the obstructions, and aimed deep into the water. Here are the results, with just cropping and light level adjustment; I reduced the noise minimally, or not at all on some, in order to keep more of the detail.
|A smaller, blue hermit in a shell I brought from the pet store. There's a second hermit just behind a thin blade of red seaweed.|
|In the shadow of the eelgrass and sea lettuce.|
|A better view of Val's (the anemone's) side wall. I did smooth out most of the noise here, so distant detail is lost.|
|Farther back, two hermits on a dark brown, stumpy seaweed. The one in the orange whelk shell is a Grainy Hand hermit. No noise correction, no spot removal.|
|25 minutes later, a smaller Hairy hermit has climbed on top, for a better view.|
|A bit closer, on the side wall. An Asian mud snail and his reflection.|
(I'm recovering from surgery, working slowly, as I can. All is well.)
