Study in Translucency

I picked a rose petal, water beds and pomegranate seeds and arranged them on a light box. All three have different levels of translucency and I was curious what kind of image I would be able to create. I started out photographing a high key stack using my 180mm macro lens. then I used layers and masking techniques to create this image where I spent a lot of time on the pomegranate seeds. As a final touch I changed the background in LAB color mode from white to black.

Enjoy and keep on photographing!
