This wild pod was taken with Canon 70D, 100mm macro lens. Aperture Priority, Focal Length 100mm, F16 to get as much detail as possible, 1/3 sec, -0.7step, ISO 100. I gave it a slit black vignette for a bit of drama. I used a 2 torch's for as light. One as back lighting and one on the front.

I love the light! And although it would look good in black and white, I actually think the lumo-green colour gives it a slightly alien feel... very cool!

Love the fine detail you got all over. The light defnitely makes it stand out.

By the way, for shots like this, you should work the colour wheel a bit when deciding on the colour of your background.

Great botanical shot, and I can't help to think that this might work in black and white too, especially if you add a bit of texture to the background. The crop, could have been just a tiny wider, especially on the right side of the frame, but your use of backlight is exquisite and you get a well deserved feature!
