A shot of some cool looking pine cones with a dose of sun star through the branches with my new DA 40 green stripe.

Surprisingly enough, it does! I was intrigued by theses cones and the bushy boughs of the pines as they are very different from the white pine trees in my yard 20 miles away. They were that color as I did only minor adjustments in DxO when PP'ing. They really were pink!

Would you happen to know exactly what kind of tree it was, from the image it looks like a sort of spruce.

The "sun star" worked very well for you.

No, I did no research via phone while there. I just wanted good starbursts while getting the big pink cones in focus. The itty bitty cones in the picture look like the ones on my Blue spruce trees in the yard.

Blue Spruce can produce pink colored pine cones.

I did not know that. I suppose that is why the little cones to the left side look just like the ones I was shooting with a macro in my yard. Again, I learned something while perusing the forums! Happy Fathers Day to all! (If applicable!)

After doing some googling, it seems that the female spruce cones point up and are often a pinkish colour and the male cones point down and are a brownish colour.
