Found Still Life #2
My "found still life" rules stipulate that elements can't be added or removed. I might clean up one or two minor distractions before I make a print, but I find that disturbing the "find" usually results in ruining what caught my eye in the first place. The seed pods are resting on a concrete walkway along the Meramec river, which is not without some irony.
Technical: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-85mm f2.8-f4, ISO 200, macro focus mode, 80mm @ f/8.0 @ 1/1000s, handheld. RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.5. I shifted the color a little to enhance the concrete's inherent green tones.
