More veggies to play with today. This time I got some bits of mossy wood from the garden to give them something to sit on.

However I've spent an age messing about with different textures and quite simply give up - I think this one works ok?

Seriously Ali, these have been a great set of images.

In the process of trying to organise a BOC shoot.
Are you interested?

Glad to boggle the mind - it's good for you!

If you can give me some idea of when you're planning a shoot I'll let you know if it's doable. Time is ok - just got an awful lot of things to pay for over the next couple or so months - to the tune of around 450 odd Sad

I like your subject matter Alison & the Moss adds some nice natural texture to the image.
I just think you needed to remove a lttle more of the added textures,especially on those red onions & the Garlic..to let a bit more of the natural colour through as the whole of the frame seems to have a rather yellowish cast to it.

Actually there is no texture on the onions or garlic - ok, a bit of yellow cast is on the heavy side on the garlic which needs attention. You'd not believe how much of the yellow cast I took off before uploading this - seems I need to remove even more!

I will admit that I tend to prefer the heavy textures and dark images but am trying to hit the happy medium and this is way softer than some of the alternatives I did! Smile

The woodlice were not too happy about having their home disturbed when I removed the mossy wood from the garden and I did have to collect a few from the table to put back outside Smile

That looks like the beginings of a good lunch - minus the woodlice

Maybe it's your choice of white balance Alison that's giving you the yellow cast...or even the surroundings ?

Poor little Woodlice,you disturbed them from their slumber Wink

You've not seen the mushrooms I've just photographed Roy - complete with fluffy bits now Smile

It'll be the texture I'm using that's giving the yellow cast - I need to make a few versions of it with different colours - yet another item on my list of things to do!

I'm sure the woodlice will forgive me - at least I picked them all up and took them back outside - I like bugsSmile

This is lovely..I know what Janet means about the yellow hue but I actually like it. This reminds me of those wonderful metal placards you can buy that used to be so popular around the fifties..full of atmosphere !

Well aged....I do like the darker textures also. There is something so dramatic about them.
