The second offering from my session with those yummylicious Strawberries.
I used a lump of black card to cut out some of the light towards the bottom of the frame & added textures on adjustment layers in Photoshop.
I had a bash at plopping something into the space top right but it really didn't look right with stuff there,I think it balances the subject better as it is & I like the light on the bg.

Thanks for dropping by.

All of your work and fine adjustments paid off big time. This is a classic still life -- wall worthy.

Looks good Jan.

But maybe the whole composition is a little to squished to the left of the frame and the fill flash a tad to eager for its mood.


Bit of space to the left and a dollop of cream would have been great

Thanks guys.

Dave,yes,maybe needs just a tad more room to the left to let them 'breathe' a bit more.No fill flash though,just used the light from my windows in the kitchen.
I was trying to avoid dropping cream on 'em,else I wouldn't have got any shots at all ! Wink

Les,I had a whole half an hour with these lush strawberries,until the urge to eat them became overwhelming...half an hour toooo much for my taste buds though Wink
