Can you tell what the translucent object is in the photograph above? It’s a single grain of sugar captured in a macro photograph by artist Pyanek, whose “Amazing Worlds Within Our World” project is a series of macro shots that show the beautiful details of ordinary things — things that we generally don’t (or can’t) see with our naked eyes.
The photos were captured using a Canon T3i DSLR with a reversed kit lens and edited with HeliconFocus (focus stacking), Lightroom, and Exposure 5.
Here are the other photographs in the series:
Pyanek has released the images in the series to the public for downloading, viewing, and sharing.
