I've done a stack of still life pics today with my varied collection of veggies etc. but have chosen the most simple of the lot to upload this evening. I'm sure the others will make an appearance in due course but I think this is my favourite so far....

You can't beat good natural light - and it was just right this afternoon.....

Natural light? Awe. Some.

A beautiful still life but I particularly love how the garlic has turned out here.

Couple of eggs and some gorgonzola and we've got one helluvan omelette Smile

Nice work. It's making my mouth water especially with the mention of an omelette! Really good natural light and a good choice of background.

Thanks everyone - sadly no eggs in my house so no omelettes although I do have a lump of Cheddar in the fridge Smile I either leave the garlic to grow or chuck it when I can't stand the smell anymore Smile

I'm hoping for decent light again tomorrow so I can see what other combinations I can come up with.

No stacking here Les - just straight off the camera with a bit of added levels tweaking and a bit of Lucis - I'll pop the original up so you can see Smile (just don't take any notice of that clumsy bit of bright spot removal - I'll have to redo that!)

Thank you James - I often aim for the painting effect though it's a continuing effort! The props are filling the house rapidly - I have rather a lot!
