Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Abstract II (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: At home
Date: Feb 5, 2006
Aperture: 16
ISO: 100
Shutter: 2 sec
Galleries: Abstract, Studio
Date Uploaded: Feb 5, 2006

Setup:
The subject is a chrome spiral fruit bowl. I used a single light source, a cheap IKEA lamp with a 60 watt bulb. The red color on the spiral and in the upper half of the background is a reflection from a red cardboard which I moved side to side during the exposure. The movement creates the blur of the red background.

Post processing:
I didn't have a cardboard big enough to use with the wide angle I used for the shot so I had to place two of them (blue) side by side. I used the healing brush and clone stamp tools to stitch the background together. I also cloned out some censor dust and some dust on the spiral. I tuned the colors with Selective color layer. Cropped, resized, sharpened and added border.
