My first tomato

By helenlinda
Thank you so much for the support I have been given for my carrot flower still life photos. In particular thanks to Joline and Ian Gilmore, to Dudler and Brian and also to Kate and Lilian for their User Awards for the three images.

My first tomato - and very tasty it was too !!!!
Seems rather random to give it some texture from the inside of a metal bucket, but it seems to work
Thanks for looking

I love the processing. It's wonderfully earthy, organic. I can smell it.

I'm not a great tomato fan but this is exquisite. The balance between image and frame is important though I can't quite think why.
The perfect accompaniment to a Double Wooly!

Tomatoes are best eaten freshly picked. I miss the kitchen garden we had years ago...

You did well. I gave up with tomatoes. Everyone else seemed to get loads of lovely ones, and I only got tiny, split ones.
Well worth preserving, photographically. Smile

A lovely texture and I'm glad the taste was great also.
Amazing shadow.
