Algae

Post by micro_pix »

I'd really like to produce a nice image of a Rotifer but I tried and I'm a long way off so I'm practising on things that don't move so fast! They were in the same sample of stream water and are individual stacks formed in to a composite image. Is that OK? - or too much editing.... the scale is the same.

Certainly OK. This forum has no objection to almost any amount of image editing, as long as the text tells us what was done.

The image is very nice, by the way. :D

Thanks for the comments. I've realised that there is an advantage of tidying the background and filling it with a single colour - it reduces the jpg file size a lot so you can have less compression in the bits that matter.

I think the two filaments are Spirogyras but I haven't worked out what the oblong one is. It was about 205 x 85 microns.

Nice! Agree with Rik. As long as you are transparent with the changes I see no reason not to be creative! I did the same with my shots of Euglena. Of course, I was also open with that it was edited.
