This is a percolator filled with rooibos tea leaves . This was taken in our kitchen in the late afternoon .
I used a slow 0.5 shutter speed and a tripod.
I did not need to do a lot of post processing .
The highlights were already to my liking .
I darkened the blacks a bit with a colour curve remapping by decreasing the dark side edge .
As well as increasing the saturation on the tee to give the illusion of the glowing colour of the tea vibrating in a very solid container .
