Chinese lantern plant, 1st Peter Gilbert, Devon 44pts

1st Peter Gilbert, Devon 44pts Canon EOS 40D, 100mm macro, 1/60sec at f/18, ISO 200, ringflash with LED handheld torch for backlighting The papery husk that surrounded a fruit of the Chinese lantern plant Judges say: ‘Expertly lit and very well exposed, Peter’s image impressed the judges with its technical finesse. The husk looks almost 3D and appears to be floating in mid-air. It is a simple idea, but one that works brilliantly.’
