Sloe Berries

By chase
More Sloes with a few of my collection of blue bottles.
Plenty of the fruit around to make my Sloe Gin Wink

Taken in daylight camera left.
An HDR image, 3 frames each 1 stop apart combined in Lightroom and tinkered with in Photoshop.

Thanks for calling in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

This is a delight on so many levels. I remember drinking sloe gin in college.
The blue glass is a real treat.

Many thanks all.
Kate and Joline, wonderful to have your User Awards, thank you for the compliment.

Sloes do photograph well, they have a 'bloom' all of their own, even better than black grapes.

The round bottle at the back is the hardest to photograph as it reflects the light much more than the others, no Angela, you can't have them Wink, took me years to collect these, some I found in the ground, some donated to me shops of course Wink

I prefer this one too Trev, much more to it I think.

I love how these are arranged. And the colours, muted and dreamy.

Cleaner and sharper than yesterday's, but equally pleasing. Not sure which version I prefer...
