This is quite a fun shot and one of the first up-close macro shots I've taken with my Olympus E-330. What you are looking at here is lichen growth on the bark of a very old maple tree. Toronto, Canada. Photographed May 15, 2006.
Photoshop tweaks: levels, selective colour (removed a large amount of yellow and boosted the green). I also had to clone out a small spider's web that I thought distracted the eye from the focal point.
