Baby Grape! So cute :)

Used Nik Color Efex - darken/lighten center, glamour glow, remove color cast

Used Topaz Clean and Topaz Denoise. Darkened green stems so they wouldn't be a "distraction" :)

btw - I may not really understand the definition. I went with a scale comparison. A comparative relationship using the different sizes etc.

***************
I haven't won a ribbon since 2009 so this is quite nice. The elusive Red Ribbon is still out of reach but I guess there's always hope :)

Thanks for all the comments!
