Also, cherries!

So, I meant to celebrate my breaking 100 followers on the last post, but I forgot.... So...happy 101 followers to me! 

As for these photos, the top one is obviously very different from the bottom two, and for good reason. They were taken about a year apart....The top one is new, the bottom two are from last summer.

The top one....I had to mess with a lot to get that kind of color, but I like how it turned out. I pretty much eliminated all the blue, which makes them very warm looking (it's surprising how much blue is in a picture of red fruit....). My only problem is I wish the edges of the cherries were a little more well defined--a little more sharp. 

The bottom two are also very different...the middle photo has the whole dark/light contrast thing going on, which I think makes up for the lack of riveting subject matter. The bottom one... I really like how sharp and crisp the leaves turned out, and I changed the color temperature to more warm...which obviously makes the photo feel more warm (which I like).

That's about it for these pictures..... I really love photographing fruit, because it has some great detail if you get in close (which seems to be a recurring trend for me...). I wish I could do more maybe I will.

Quick Stats as of right now: 18,542 views (thanks stumbleupon), 6875 stumbleupon likes, 21 posts, 39 photos, 101 followers, and all in 2.5 months.
