Mint Sauce

By chase
A few sprigs of Mint from my garden...just before I used it on the Lamb chops cooking in the oven Wink
The ingredients for this image were just sat there,staring at me,so out came the camera.

F16 manual mode
F/L 50mm
Raw files converted in Lightroom
5 x 16 but tiffs combined & tonemapped in Photomatix.
Textures added on adjustment layers in Photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by,I hope your weekend is going well.
Janet xx
