Breaking free

A Ricinus seedling after emerging from the Castor Oil bean. Even the seed leaves are highly textured signalling what lies ahead for this handsome foliage plant. It’s rugged nature is what I tried to capture here as its breaking free from the papery seedcase which still clings to the first leaves. However, I could not decide between hard or soft monochrome so tried both with the Ricoh GRiii image control monochrome selections!
