I had in mind Baudelaire's poem with its famous line:
Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.
( There, there’s only order, beauty: abundant, calm, voluptuous.)
In the background a part of one of my painting.

Cropped a little, increased saturation just a tiny bit, and used unsharp mask.
The aroma of the peaches was ambrosian.

This is magnificent. A palpable decadence, totally tactile.

Bit too noisy & grainy for my taste, but.. How did you get that peach into that glass kajigger?
