So what do you think?
Still life with apples.
Not too bad, is it?
I think I did well with the sheen of the fruit, and the light reflections.
Not to mention the thatch of the basket.
Can you give it a critique?
Oh, all right.
So I lied.
That's part of story-telling.
Here's the original, before it was dealt with in my PHOTO-editing software.
Yup, it's just a photograph.
Actually, I prefer one I took with a little less light on the subject. It seems to bring out the deeper reds.
So, there's my "story" for today.
And apologies to Stephen, a REAL artist.
