I like this image. It is well lit and well focussed. There is plenty of detail and I particularly like the one different nut in the top right hand quarter of the image.

Thanks Andy, just entered into our club annual, shot the original 2 years ago but was never happy with the focal point, so I placed a Pistachio nut on the third to give a focal resting point and I am quite pleased with the result.

Different, isn't it ? !

I find it a little flat though.

I've uploaded a simple mod. in which I've increased the brightness and contrast slightly and sharpened it a little.

Just a thought and nothing to do with the quality of the image; were those nuts really that salty or did you add some for effect?

Bren.

Welcome to epz Andy. Like the shot. Sometimes the resizing for epz can make the shot appear a bit soft - so I have added some sharpening. Steve.

Welcome to epz Andy I am sure you will enjoy your time here. The idea is great with the addition of the salt and pistachio lifting the image from the ordinary. For me the pistachio is a bit close to the edge of the frame so I have offered a mod with a square crop. I also felt that the shot was a touch under exposed so I have reset the white point with a levels adjustment. Finally, as already mentioned above, you will need to sharpen the image after resizing.
I hope this helps in some way.
Phil
