...And Cream
...And Cream

Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Shallow DOF in Red (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D300s
Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Date: Jan 9, 2012
Galleries: Still Life, Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Jan 8, 2012

The Image: Quick to shoot using available window light in our sunroom. Bought the strawberries and paper, had the napkin and forks. Thankfully there was cream in the fridge which I think adds nice contrast to the red.

Tried a variety of lenses, but in the end the Sigma 30mm 1.4 did a great job at F2.

The Edit: Different adjustment layers for sharpness, colour, levels, but it was very basic apart from that.

The Prediction: If I get less than 6.0000 I will be very disappointed. Trying for a 6.5000, maybe a top 10.

To me the cream looks mint green in color. I am expecting white. There is no indication it should be otherwise. You got some harsh highlights on the curvature of the strawberries. Blocking some of that light might help. DoF is good and great subject for the challenge.

The table cloth made the image too red, white might have done the trick.
Never the less good DOF usage

Very appetizing. I like the angle of the napkin/forks, it adds a bit of a dynamic element.
