This image of a plant terrarium is one of the "departure" experimental edits. The overwhelming shadows in the image serve as a contrast to the small highlights spread around the foreground and background.
This image is the "intended" exposure of the orginal photograph. Its balance between shadow and highlight gives a clear but dramatic view of the glass and plants.
This image is another departure from the original -- its much lighter exposure gives an even clearer view of the plants in the image.
