    The hands do say it all.

    Very the composition.
  • Nick Harris PRO 5y

    Those hands belong to my wonderful 80 year old Mum - who indulged my artistic pretenses... thanks for the feedback!

    This is fantastic!...the colors are eye-popping and the semi desaturated hands add to the contrast....i love the negative space to the right...makes it feel as the subject is about to hand over the tomatoes to someone else....very nice sir!

    what sort of lighting device/system did you use for this? its very nice!
  • Nick Harris PRO 5y

    thanks Sal and weo1weo1weo1! I shot this under overcast daylight outdoors. The trick was in the processing - I created a 'gritty' desaturated layer using the brilliant Lucusart SE plug-in and then revealed the original layer for the tomatoes only.

    I heard about the Lucusart SE plug-in. How are you liking it?
  • Penelope Taylor 5y

    Wow! Thank you for the back story. Knowing it's your Mum adds even more emotion to the shot than what was already generated. Very good job!

    Wow, what a shot. The hands tell so much. Love the great looking tomatoes, they really pop out nicely. Also VERY nice contrast with the hands that are almost monotone and the vast color of the tomatoes.
