Salt & Pepper

This week’s Photo Challenge is salt & pepper. It’s a simple theme with lots of scope for different interpretations. I immediately had the idea of a high-contrast black & white version.

This picture was taken using sheets of black and white plastic, and a small cookie cutter to sprinkle the condiments in circular heaps. It has had very little post-processing – just boosting the contrast and cloning out a few grains of salt that got away. I honestly spent longer prodding peppercorns with tweezers than I did on the computer.
