For Christmas, I was given a kumquat tree. Miraculously, it has survived thus far and so I photographed it for this week’s fruit-themed Photo Challenge. I had intended to make a more elaborate still life composition, but when I looked at it, I thought the contrast of the gnarly tree trunk and the smooth fruit was sufficient.
Digital image taken with Canon EOS 600D and Canon EF 50mm f/1.8. Mixed artificial light sources (some LED, some CFL), red channel extracted from the colour image to make a monochrome and selenium tone added.
