Fennel from my garden.
This stem was battered by the recent wind and already broken, an ideal opportunity for a few frames.
I rediscovered the little pot hidden away in the back of a cupboard during a tidy out.

Lit by a small handheld led light, directed to shed some light on the dark bg.
A 3 frame HDR image, combined in Lightroom, finished with a tidy up crop, levels and a drop of sharpening in Photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Love the hessian underneath as used as a bow on the vase.
The fennel is a lovely plant and you've done it proud with your imaginative

THis is gorgeous. I particularly like the inclusion of the hessian, which makes all the difference to the composition by way of colour and texture.

Beautiful still-life, Janet, I like the limited colours too and the hessian really suits the fennel.

We had fennel clumps in our garden in France, growing to over 6ft, made a nice screen for our sun terrace, and a lovely scent too (if you like aniseed balls!).

Beautiful image Janet - really like the Fennel arrangement and the hessian on the vase was good choice.
Love this Janet, the composition, colours, lighting and the perfect BG make this a beautiful still life image.

A wonderful image Janet. Beautiful work.

How did I miss this yesterday? It's lovely. Graceful stems and great lighting. I do wish however that it had a base. It looks to me like the hessian is a bit of a magic carpet keeping the whole thing suspended mid-air.
