  #206 Chlorophyll
Entry 4 of 25
Eat Your Chlorophyll       ©2018 jomari
Panasonic DMC-FZ70       4th place, 109 points
1/59s, f2.8, ISO 250, 20mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: Crop and straighten.
Topaz Studio cs hdr over cs paint.
Topaz Impression swirly strokes applied to background only.
Topaz Studio 1200 Topz hdr applied and erased over cutlery.
A little fiddling with spot healing and blur on some bright pixels in cutlery.
Image resized and saved for web.
      Extra Info: Cloth under bowls was not ironed (we have painters at our place and everything is a hassle) so I used an impressionistic texture, just on the cloth - looks better than wrinkles ;-)

    Congtas jomari, glad this finished high :)

    Thanks to everyone for votes and comments, both during and after voting.

@ aoc46, I tried many versions of this, including rotating the plate (not the photo). In the end I decided on this.

@ SteveBee and A.N.Other I didn't think of different coloured crockery, but if I had I don't know what I would have used.

One strange thing I found while shooting this, is that if I placed the cutlery besides the crockery they had to be miles away or the camera saw them as under the edges of the lower plate. (They curve upwards, specially in the corners.)

    Congrats - even I might eat this salad :-)

    This was beautifully composed and executed. Well done Jomari.

    Nice arrangement, focus, and lighting. fav.

    I like your photo but wish you hadn't chosen a green plate as it detracts from the colour of the vegetables.

    Good move on the texture, I'm sure it's a much better photo as a result. Excellent detail.

    A good picture but IMHO the cutlery looks as if it's about to flip the contents out.

    I like the interesting combination of bowls to add interest to the vegetables. The composition is excellent and the tablecloth looks lovely.

    Simple but very well executed idea, beautifully lighted, the cenital perspective adds an interesting point of view, nicely composed too... Great for the theme and high in my TT, well done!

    Well done still life. In my favorites.

    Very nicely arranged shot. I wonder if the vegetables would have stood out more with different color plates rather than greens on green on green.

    I really like this. Nice green vegetables, and you presented them beautifully, love the dishes and the composition. High in my TT.

    Well-shot - the fork and knife are a nice complement to the dish and vegetables. Consider rotating 90 degrees; at first I thought left, but maybe right is better - less predictable, more interesting.
