Up close and personal this looks like a mountain of pumpkin seeds. In reality it is just a small handful in the bottom of a glass dish.
Reality is a bit tweaked though. I almost feel as if I was able to be standing in the bowl taking the shot as well as viewing the shot. Sometimes the macros turn out and sometimes they don't. I haven't yet figured out the magic to the art of macro photography. But I think that part of the key is to not think TOO hard what you are doing.
