A fern that I photographed recently during a walk through the woods near home on the edge of the Peak District.
This a straight photo with no manipulation other than the conversion to b&w. The trick, if there is one, lies in imagining it in b&w and what the tonal separation might look like - in this case, the green of the fern frond against the red and gold colours of the fallen leaves under it and how those might convert to mono.
