Title: Lost Souls
This striking image was created using a slab of petrified wood from Madagascar, however, the segment seen in Lost Souls is only about half an inch or so. At this magnification, detail not normally noticed becomes clear and the composition takes on an entirely different feel. In this case, the "cells" appeared to me as little human heads, then, more to the point, symbolic of the human soul, or spirit.
I used artificial lighting for this image for a uniform illumination. Nikon gear, including a D610 and a 60mm macro lens with two extension tubes to increase magnification. Software used was Photoshop and Lightroom to remove some glaring imperfections.
