Green Japanese plums from our yard, January 2006. I edited this one over, adding contrast and sharpness.

Doesn’t this orange look delicious? If you like rotten fruit with bugs in it…

Tomatoes at Publix from September of 2005. This picture had motion blur so I sharpened it a lot.

When Life Gives You Lemons...

When life gives you lemons… make lemonade. Shot this at Wal-Mart with my digital compact while looking for groceries. The lemons are very yellow and this probably wouldn’t print well, but it looks nice on the screen. :smile:

For editing, I used the Auto Tone function and added a little contrast. Nothing other than that. Editing does not always have to be complicated.

The stickers on the lemons say “Sunkist 4958.” Every fruit has to have a sticker now.

Photo: Apples Baking

Apples Baking

Some apple slices covered in honey baking in the oven. I shot this when I was cooking with friends for the International Food Festival at Daytona State College’s DeLand campus Nov. 2009. I wasn’t there for the festival and we didn’t sell much food, but at least this photo came of it. :smile:

The glass on the front of the oven had a speckled pattern which, combined with the heat, makes the inside of the oven foggy.

For editing, I just added contrast and changed the white balance in Adobe Camera Raw before importing into Photoshop. I didn’t do any spot editing. There’s a lot of grain since this was dark and I shot at ISO800, F2.2 with my 50mm lens. Using a flash wasn’t an option at all since that would have bounced off the glass.

Photo: Tomatoes Without Silicone

Tomatoes Without Silicone

Unlike in Publix’s ads, tomatoes can be very ugly. I shot this at the local produce market and you can see spots all over them. Granted, I added contrast, color, and vignetting, but I didn’t bother editing out all the spots like the professionals do. Normally I’d call it laziness, but today I’m calling it realism. These are tomatoes without silicone… no, that has nothing to do with boobs.
