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! #181810

Carolina K. Smith 10/25/2004 4:20:10 AM

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'. #867765

Beautifully captured, Carolina! The look good enough to eat! I can see why you were fooled! #868496

Carolina K. Smith 10/25/2004 11:54:20 AM

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 :) #868562

Robin L. Wehrman 10/25/2004 12:35:00 PM

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!! #869080

Carolina K. Smith 10/25/2004 8:13:18 PM

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 :) #869472

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...
