Tribute to Rikki's "Lemon Drop". Martini glass in front of computer screen with a fractal background.

Shot RAW, converted to TIFF (adjusted contrast and exposure in RawShooter Essentials).

Opened in PSP9. Straightened and cropped edges a tad. Increased contrast, worked on colours to make them brighter and redder. Cloned out impurities. Used dodge. Resized, sharpened, ran through noise reduction, used dodge again. Saved as JPG.

Yowsa! Care for a Windex drink? Hehehehe! Hey where's the lemon Drop? DNMC! Kudos to you for trying this shot. I bet you found it a lot trickier than what most people thought. The colors remind me of kinda being on acid... not that I've tripped on it ;) Great image and thank you for the Deja Vu ;)

Cheers,

Rikki
