    Thank you very much for the great comments.

It was amazing how much more detail was brought out by using the sepia tone.

    Nature makes wonderful patterns and this is caught beautifully here.

    Incredible detail enhanced by the sepia tone. Pure B&W would have been too stark. Great composition and crop. High in my favourites.

    Thank you very much all. I did consider a closer crop. Maybe I'll have another go at the photo :-) .

    Interesting patterns, though I'd prefer a tighter crop, as the surrounding darkness doesn't add anything.

    Thanks very much both. I love how nature is clever enough to use Fibonacci numbers to pack in as many seeds into a given space as possible.

    Lovely pattern. Highlights and shadows are effective.
