I took a walk down the lane next door to me to se what I could find....good bit of exercise.
Spotted this hawthorn still with some berries left over from Autumn and with new leaves emerging.

Taken in daylight on a black, reflective surface.
I used a piece of material hung on a dress rail to stop some of the light.
I wanted this to be really dark with the light hitting the berries and the red bottle.
The pewter plate the bottle is standing is really bent but, I think it adds a little to the image.

Raw file converted in Lightroom, finished with some faffing in Photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Stay safe everyone.

Yes, it works for me, Janet. Just enough light to allow us to enjoy the main elements.
