  #185 Colors Revisited
Entry 7 of 29
   
 
Mini Peppers!       ©2017 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       7th place, 121 points
1/8s, f6.3, ISO 125, 40mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjusted lens distortion; cropped; evened out the colors of the background; slightly increased color saturation; remove small blemishes on the peppers and plate; denoised and sharpened; resized.       Extra Info: Bought a matte black plate at the dime store, then piled up some mini bell peppers.

I hung a very sheer white fabric behind it to soften surrounding light. I was counting on the sun behind the fabric to provide enough light, but alas it's been very cloudy for several days. So I held a small flashlight to light the subject to bring out the colors.

    Thank you for the nice comments, everyone!

davemisunas - I wondered about the white reflection too, but I decided I liked the "shiny" effect.

aoc46 - I tried different arrangements, but at the end I decided I liked the natural stack.

    An odd meal, but certainly fits the theme and is well captured.

    Excellent composition and detail. The exposure is perfect.

    Crisp and colourful - very inviting shot. The black plate was ideal. Thanks for the info on your setup.

    Like the diamond-shaped positioning of the plate. Nice color in the peppers, but consider exploring some other arrangements - fanning them out, maybe?

    Very nice still life. Colors are great and the composition is pleasing. In my TT.

    Good focus! It looks as if I can 'reach over and pick one up!'

    Beautifully composed - a really strong design. The colours are lovely and really pop against the platter. Top 2.

    well done still life... mat black and cloth really help peppers stand out. for me the white reflections on the peppers can be a bit distracting but still a very nice image... in my favorites.
