Cones On A Branch


Cones

There wasn’t much color to begin with in this image. The branch is from a dead tree that had fallen over and was a nearly uniform grey color. There wasn’t much to differentiate the parts that were in or out of focus. I started by increasing the contrast in the image, then converting the image to black and white. I darkened the edges with a vignette and sharpened the in focus cones in the center of the image with the hopes that it would help make the image pop a little more. I thought the high contrast made the image work for me.

In the best light…
