I took these pictures of agate slices several years ago and decided I wanted to make them into wall art. I thought they needed to be punched up a bit, though, so I applied a little HDR effect to each one. In my last post, I compared the difference between a regularly processed shot and the same individual shot processed in HDR. I have done the same thing here with the agate pictures, processing only one shot.

All of these were shot using natural window light from behind. I propped them in a window, placed my camera on a tripod and pulled in close for a lot of detail.

Experiment, always 🙂
