Inspired by (and meant as a tribute to) E.P.'s (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) .

', who himself was inspired by a Heinz Ketchup ad, that was inspired by a turkish ketchup ad...

I had the great advantage of advanced editing (beside the fact tomatoes contain more liquid), so I don't hope to get a score nearly as high as Techo's 8+.

Took me 2 hours to design the label (using four of my own stock images), only about 3 hours for preparing and shooting and 3 hours of PP, mostly cleaning up the edges, where the label didn't match the slices). It was fun to do, anyway.

Here's the setup: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/49109/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_924102.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/49109/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_924102.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Hi there!

Congrats on top finish. Great picture. I would like to know the light setup for this. Will appreciate if you can help. I have 3 Alien Bee Lights but my backgrounds never come out so bright. Can you please let me know how to setup the lights for this and what background have you used for this and how far is the subject from the background.
Thanks!
