This is a slightly different take on the backlit nautilus shell that I think better preserves the effect. The Lightroom 3.3 update included a lens profile for the Apple iPhone lens, which I applied. Nik HDR Efex provided the extra texture given the two iPhone HDR shots.
This monochrome conversion is from Nik Silver Efex Pro using a split tone preset I made for still life subjects.
I liked the hand coated paper look of the Instgram picture and remembered that I have the OnOne Edge Effects free version. This is the "Controlled Grunge" frame I applied in Photoshop after laying down a 2.0 Gaussian blur.
