Almost There.

By maures53
Got down low to shoot the snail and then used a pic of downtown San Francisco as the B/G. As always, it's better large.

This is fantastic. I've never seen a snail shot from this perspective. I love the selective coloring and the clear cityscape in the background. Is that San Francisco? -=Walter (

Great concept and you've pulled it off very well. You can imagine the poor snail desperately waving its feelers in the hope of hitching a ride... Smile

Congrats on the HC, btw.
