These pods light up just dandy. Taken during my daily walk and processed solely in Oloneo. Only took a few seconds, turned the brightness of the greens down to get a black background and the orange slider up for the light effect of the pods.

Sunset Point Park. Those Tungsten mercury vaper lamps create some nice shadows. This shot was a bit tricky as the camera did not want to autofocus due to the low light conditions. I used focus stacking to get everything sharp.
