Overexposed Chestnuts

Overexposed Chestnuts

I’m quite fond of these kind of chestnuts*, photographically at least. I just love their shape and form. But usually my attempts at shooting them fail, for one reason or another. Case in point, this image was originally underexposed, flat, boring, and dull (I was going for a silhouette… didn’t work out as well as I thought).

The only edit I made here was maxing out the exposure level in developing the RAW image, and I think that alone was enough to transform it into an interesting image

Exposure: 1/160″
Aperture: f/6.3
Focal Length: 48mm

*I’ve always assumed that’s what they are, but I’m not 100% sure. Feel free to correct me.
