Abnormality by Mr-Frenzy Abnormality by Mr-Frenzy
Are you one of those who stand out from the rest, a colorful spot on the bleak everyday society ;) hehe

Was working some more with some techniques i was eager to test out. I think it worked out pretty good. I was trying to get a clean, smooth look, yet still not loose too much of an interesting composition.

I staged some blocks of sugar and was trying to get a nice dof with a smooth bokhe. Then i got this idea hehe, what if i dip one of these suckers into some strawberry juice to make it stand out more. Well, the rest of the piece i worked up in photoshop cs2. Added some more intenze light and contrast. I removed some of the shaddows to further enhance the clean look.

Well, me and my experimenting :)

Hope you guys like it ;)

Working time: 4 hours including the staging
Tools of the trade: Canon eos 20d w/18-55mm, flash: Canon ex 580, Photoshop cs2, bucket of coffee :lol:
Music: Transatlantic

Sugar - one of my favourite nom-noms. And the symbolism in this picture more than makes my day. :)

SUGAR CUBES.

...BLOOD CUBE?

That was my first reaction. I like sugar, myself.

my opinion is that you're better with photography, than you are with planets drawings. Don't resent. I think you are very very good photographer.
