Rather than going back to bed yesterday morning, I thought I'd get creative with some vegetables ... this is the result. The asparagus was a bit past its best, so the only other option in the fridge was the tender-stem broccoli. The background is a wooden herb chopper.

Natural light from the french windows, slightly diffused by the vertical blinds. Used a tripod and a remote release.

Later that evening I cooked and ate the broccoli ... it was very nice Grin

Gently and subtly perfect.

Did it taste good when cooked?

I'll have to say I really really hate broccoli ... but wow !
This is beautifully done indeed - excellent light and composition and I think going B+W really works so well here.

Not that I'm tempted to go eat some, but at least now I can look at it and not shudder.

Oh good heavens - I GOT AN HC!!!!! My very first as well - thank you so much, it's very much appreciated Grin (Okay, I got an EC once for one of my other pics once, but that was donkeys years go ... hmmm - maybe I shouldn't have eaten the brocolli afterwards?!)

And thank you all for commenting, glad my humble veg was so well received.

I like the contrast between softness of the broccoli and the graining in the wood. really suits mono. Exposure and tonal range are good. congrats on the award well deserved. paul
