Botanical Abrstract #2

I've been meaning for some time to photograph the contents of a bowl of dried plants that took up residence in our house a few years ago, and kicked off the project today with the bottom view of a seed pod.

Technical: Nikon D700, Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8, ISO 200, f/16 @ 1/20s, tripod.  The pod is sitting on white plexi, lit with a single Calumet Quattro head without the "shower cap".  RAW file processed with Lightroom 2.6, Nik Dfine and Nik Silver Efex Pro for conversion to monochrome and toning.
