I wanted to shoot some black and white shots while we were on holiday recently at Center Parcs in Cumbria, and outside our lodge a large fir tree had shed some of the seed pods. I looked through the foliage on the ground and chose a couple of likely targets, dusting them off and placing them carefully balanced on a tree branch.
The light was failing so the actual shots were slightly underexposed. I compensated for this in the post-processing in Lightroom. In the end I was quite pleased with this effect.
