The first shot from the setup shown yesterday.

The photograph as it came out of the camera.

Here is the same shell converted to black and white. For this photo I had to darken the background to make it a true black and enlarge the “canvas” of the photograph to give more room around the photograph. A touch of sharpening and brightness/contrast adjustments and here’s the result.

Here is the same photo but without the additional (kid’s Science poster) reflector on the backside.
