Taken this morning in some lovely light camera left, restricted a little to come over the top of my soft box which I used as a kind of diffuser.
The Thyme is one of those 'live herbs' rooted in a pot from the Supermarket.
The wooden base is made out of some recycled fence panels.

I like the Earth colours punctuated by the greens from the Thyme.

An HDR image, 3 frames each 1 stop apart, combined in Lightroom and faffed with in Photoshop with a tidy up crop, levels, brightness and contrast.

Thanks for dropping by.
There could be a mini series from this shoot Wink

Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Take care everyone and please stay safe.

Nicely constructed Janet, I like the earth tones too. I have a couple of textures that may add something, so I'll have a go at a mod later. That reminds me that I need to get a new thyme plant as the one in the garden died off for some reason last winter.
My award!

Thanks all.
Norm, great to have your UA and I look forward to seeing your mod.
No textures added on this image, the bg is a cheap backdrop.

I absolutely love this - the pots and hessian are so earthy and the thyme
beautifully spread out.
Love your subtle lighting.

The modification really brings out the beauty of this. The original is bordering to way too dark.

You do seem to have a comprehensive ensemble of objects to provide setups for your still-life images, Janet! 😃 Another wonderful image here 👍

Thanks everyone.
Norm,thanks for the mod, a very different look, possibly a bit red for me but we all see things in a different way which is a good thing, otherwise everything would be the same.

You are right Janet we all see things differently. For me both are excellent but I can see the lighter one better. David

Beautiful work Janet, the variety of textures really brings the image to life. The green highlight of the thyme is splendid!!
