A simple clean background, with a very detailed subject. Very nice! 8) Amazing as to how the organism that once lived here was able to construct such an exquisite structure out of the four nucleotides that all living organisms posses.

Nice image

Nice image Saul I presume it was a focus stack. It seems to have a glow or haze around the structure.

Yes, 154 photos, using PS . Glow left intentionally, without it picture looked flat.
Single photo does not have it

" a la Hoffman" extras were used with the condenser conversion insert set. Instead mirrored surfaces I used polarizing filters, what gave me ability to adjust their darkness with one more polarizing filter on the illuminator.
This is just general idea, I used other things together with this setup (will write separate post, results of this setup were very interesting).

Excellent image Saul. Stereo pair turned out very nice as well. I like the shadows in the shell pores, gives it a 3D look. Just to experiment, you should try inverting the image in PS. One of mine turned out interesting.

Very nice image, Saul. It remains clear and 3 dimensional, also in the upper part which I found myself the most challenging to capture.
