Cherries

Cherries
I knew we were staying at a nice place (a suite @ Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas)... so I thought, 'How nice', when we entered our suite and saw a delicious bowl of cherries. I had to laugh at myself when I tugged at the faux fruit...

    My favorite fruit, I can see why you thought they were real! They look delicious! hehe. I love how you handled the composition and lighting in this one Carolina. You've elevated them to Royal Cherries!

Thank you, Patricia :)
I LOVE cherries as well. This was shot at ISO 6, 60sec, f/13, 24mm. Only light was the lamp. That is the lamp base behind the 'cherries'.

LOL I would have done the same thing. You captured them very well. The warm lighting is very fitting here.

Thank you, Colette, Charlene, Debra, Darren, Lori, and Dan for your consoling comments!
I do take full responsibility for my actions (ha), but note that in many places, it seems the bright lights of Las Vegas are saved for the neons and the stage :)

Wonderful composition and capture of color and light here, Carolina, especially the golden sparkle on those faux cherries! Hope you at least lined up three of them on the slots!!

Thank you, Robin, Bill, and Carol.
Not a lot of action on the slots, though they're fun to watch, but there is alot of really great food!

Thank you all for your kind comments :)

Carolina, it looks like you recovered sufficiently from your disappointment about snacking to take an excellent still life. Beautiful image!
