Mummified Orange Slice

Among our cherished family possessions is this mummified orange slice.  Okay, maybe cherished is a bit strong.  Usually this is the type of thing you find lurking under the fridge, but we keep ours in a glass jar in the living room.  Here are two interpretations.  The monochrome version above is derived from the Nik Silver Efex Pro "Grainy Portrait" style.  The color version below has the "nice bright colors" of Kodachrome, courtesy the Film Effects tool in Nik Color Efex Pro.

Technical: Nikon D700, Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8, ISO 200, f/16 @ 1/13s, tripod. The pod is sitting on white plexi and lit with a single Calumet Quattro lights, sans shower cap.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, Nik Dfine, Nik Silver Efex Pro and Nik Color Efex Pro.
