This started as a simple farmers market capture of Rainier cherries in a plastic cup (see first comment box for the unretouched original). I had a lot of fun playing with textures in an attempt to achieve the warmth of an old painting, and I ended up using bits and pieces of seven different textures (with lots of layers and masks). (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/125 sec., ISO 250, open shade, handheld) Textures are from Leslie Nicole's French Kiss Textures. I will be away for a while today and back to visit your streams later tonight.
