[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a photo of a snail that was taken on June 20, 2008. My land lord Tim found this one when walking through the yard, and he thought it would be nice if I got a photo of it because he knows how I love nature and photography. Fortunatly my friend Mark Straub was with and brought his camera which I was allowed to use so I put it back in the grass were it beloings and trying taking some photos, this one turned out best. I used my friends camera instead of mine because his has a very good macro. I used picasa 2 to increase the lighting a little by using the I'm feeling lucky button and resized and exported to get to fit onto treknature. I was thinking perhaps Joey would enjoy seeing this one which is why I choose this one for todays post. Enjoy! :-)

Great macro shot Josh,
Very sharp image with good DOF. I like colours that it has in it's shell, they are very natural looking.
Well done!! Good notes also!

You see Josh? This (your) is the eye of a man of God who sees not only the large image in landscape but understands the smallest of things in nature as well...and done so well...It is a happy picture. Full of spirit and full of true nature!

Today we're in the same neighbourhood!While I'm not your next door neighbour,I'm proud to be near abouts!
A lovely macro shot, very detailed, perfectly exposed and very well framed.You've also chosen a very nice POV.
And I'd like you to feel lucky that the "I'm feeling Lucky" tab did'nt ruin your shot, as it more often than not, does!I started off with Picasa 2, too, and that was as recently as Feb that I got into post processing...
Picasa is a nice software, but try using it manually, and avoid the "Lucky".

Yes, this is the kind of shot I love! :-D
You've captured a lot of detail in the slimy skin.
Excellent pose and composition.
Perfect DOF.
Great work!!

Cheers Josh,
