Toenail

A piece of toenail just after being detached from the toe. A product of Hematoma, which caused the nail to fall off in its own time. This was shot with Alien Bee strobes, and tissue paper as a soft box. 4:1 ratio.

Nikon D200
ISO: 100
F/11 @ 1/125th
55mm, 227.5 mm extension

Nasty...but cool.

this is breathtaking. at first glance it reminds me of mars or something, all the different reds, the swirls and textures. i mean, obviously it's not, but i'm just saying. i really like the bubbling of the blood and the texture on it.
