One more image of our crashed hard disk at work. Here you get a closer look of the reading and writing head. See here for the previous one.
TECH-INFO: shot with a Tamron 90mm macro lens (borrowed of a friend, thanks). The light comes from my big window in the living room. I used backlighting to make it more interesting. Lighting metal can be tricky but also very interesting.
One RAW file, slightly cropped and converted into a TIFF file using DxO Optics Pro. White balance is set to get (rather) neutral tones. Though it still has plenty of color (in contrary to B/W), there are warmer and colder tones. In Photoshop I enhanced contrasts globally and locally at the head and other sharp parts. Some vignetting is added too.
