Don't Eat the Pips !

By chase
Something my Mum always used to tell me, if I did eat them, a tree would grow in my tum Wink

Thought this juicy Watermelon was worth a few frames, nice and refreshing on a warm day, just like a good cup of Tea.

Taken in daylight, camera left, single frame given a drop of paint on a couple of texture layers to make it a bit different.
I wanted to almost over expose the teacup and pot but retain the colour and texture of the Watermelon.

Thanks for taking the time to look in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

A delicate refreshing image, Janet, like the pastel colours and high-key treatment, and you've gone soft-focus too!

Rose tea, Apple tea, Watermelon tea.

You can feed the chickens with the watermelon skin. They love it.

A strange combination but it works well Janet - initially looking at the water melon detail I thought you had used ' Mr Bendy' for this image.

Nicely done as ever. I'm not a fan of watermelon. I don't think it's worth the effort, like celery GrinGrin It looks better than it really is Grin
