Chilli Oil - Day 243 of Project 365



This is a jar of well matured Chilli oil, it’s been festering in there for about 5 or 6 years. I’m getting through it at a rate of around a teaspoon a week. It’s great for giving a meal that special kick ; )


Lightpainted with an LED torch on a 30 second exposure.


My 365 seems to have hit a hill this week, whilst I am happy with most of the shots I turned out, they have all been a labour of love. Hopefully I will be back on form after I catch up on my sleep this weekend!... It's Friday now so only another 21 hours till the weekend :D


Lightroom: auto levels, tweak black point, high contrast preset, white balance left at auto, export to Photoshop.


Photoshop: PTlens to correct some perspective distortion (somewhat unsuccessfully!), burn tool on a couple of highlights, sharpen, save to JPG.
