These are the pinecones I found in the grass featured in my post “weather forcaster“. This my first attempt at playing with black and white. I think the blades of grass stand out more as individuals instead of just being a green frame for the pinecones, but the cones disappear into the grass instead of being the focus of the picture.
I went out again today and took some more pinecone pictures, this time on the bark floor. I think the original is better.
