Taken on a very hot day on our ship when we were on our Med cruise. Thought it time I got out of my blue period.

You have a good eye for a photo but I'm sorry but I'm on a different wave length with this one.
I've done a mod,I'm not suggesting this is an improvement, just another take.
I've toned down the brightness and sharpened a little, cropped and rotated.

Ive looked at this a few times, and came back to it today.

I wasnt quite sure what Im looking at. I know its a pitcher of orange and lemon slices; but Im not sure whats beside it, and why the fruit is completely unfocused, while the left side is! Im sure you intended to have the right side focused, - so perhaps the oranges were a little too close for the camera.

So, using that old maxim, - if life gives you lemons, make lemonade, Ive decided to do the photo equivalent of that in the mod. Ive cropped away most of the oranges, and really blurred them a lot; Ive sharpened the left side, and increased vibrance to bring out a very nice blue thats been hiding, then framed the result, and gave it a name.

Hope you like it.

Hi Willie,

Sorry that I did not explain my pic better. It was two canisters, one with water and ice blocks and the other with water, ice and slices of oranges and lemons and very frosted on the outside. Hope this makes more sense?
