A bunch of thumbelina carrots from our local farmers market, morning light in my kitchen. 90/f4 with the macro adapter. Thank you for taking a peek.

Kaethe,

A lovely picture with the rich colors and selective focus. Have you considered cropping the leaf in the top right corner of the picture. I think it might make the picture stronger.

The soft light is beautiful.

I would like to manage to prevent people from ever seeing how a picture of mine has been done. What can it possibly matter? What I want is that the only thing emanating from my pictures should be emotion. - Pablo Picasso

Thank you everyone for your comments. I apologize for the long delay in responding, I was taking care of mom health issues.
Michael. I am fortunate, our San Francisco backyards are all very small and most of the buildings are painted a light color making for a giant soft box that reflects a beautiful light into my kitchen every morning.
Paul. I will fiddle with the cropping.

JRM, thank you for the comment, I did pull the tone curve down to deepen the shadow, so doing that probably popped the color a bit, however the thumbelina carrots are deeper in color than a regular carrot.

Thank you also to everyone who tapped the 'thanks" button.

Yeah, sometimes the choices are difficult.... digital can be inflexible sometimes

Be nice to see some more of your work?

Cheers, JRM
