Snail shells X-ray fusion photos

A friend handed me out some snail shells that he had in mind for a long time to lend me. Eventually, he found 5 beautiful shells when cleaning up the basement.

The effect of the images depends strongly on the post-processing. Some of the results may not be combined in one presentation.

Here I show three images of them as dark jewels with an intrinsic undefinable light. Maybe, we are thousand miles below sea level.

Fusion imaging works with a light box. Without, too. It depends on your subject. The light images were taken with a Leica Q, pointing just in the same direction as the X-rays from below of the X-ray tube. The resolution and technology is completely sufficient for the color use.

I designed a new composition, which should allow me to have different positions of the shells in space. The surrounding snail shells serve as supports.

I wanted to take the yellow, quit radiopaque snail shell from above. So I had to rearrange the snail shells once more.

When looking at my flickr stream you may find other representations in the preceding neighborhood of this image.

I like to make things visible the naked eye isn't able to see. That's part of my profession as a radiologist, too.
