This is another from Saturday's set, but I'm so pleased with it that it's become my new Mac desktop. Surprisingly little post-processing on it; the zoom effect was done in-camera by starting tight, using a long(-ish) shutter and zooming wide manually with the 18-70mm lens (hence the 18mm tag on the EXIF data above - I don't know how tight it was to start). The green colour is from a cross-processing style curve and then I used Photoshop's 'Diffuse Glow' filter which blew out the area around the mask to almost total white. Finally I painted out what was left of the surround with a white brush, and cropped to place it more off-centre.
