This is my first challenge entry and my goal is to not come in last place. Inspired by seeing my daughter examining insect specimens using 5 different sized magnifying glasses. Meant to capture the way we learn from exploring.

JPEG capture with basic adjustments in CS2:
- cropped
- autolevels
- increased contrast
- unsharp mask
- resized
- added border

Wow! I'm so excited that I did well! Thanks everyone for your comments!

I don't generally rate "staged" photos well...but the uniqueness of this requires me to break one of my rules. Great job.

I tried to do this for this challenge but for some reason it just wouldn't work. It would focus the subject as it usually is and not 'bigger'.
Anyway, this is fantastic.
I really like it.
Great job. 9
