I LOVE it Jan!!! The entire comp is so well done. What I love is the chocolate that is curling at the bottom of the glass! The butterfly fits it just great and the added touch of red add just enough splash to the entire image. Well done! #196717

Colleen Braun 12/15/2004 4:05:50 AM

Gianna Stadelmyer 12/15/2004 1:37:56 PM

Thanks so much for your wonderufl comments everyone! I really appreciate them! I had so much fun shooting this. It's something I'hve wanted to do for awhile, but then got sick and couldn't do it and then the window light was too dark fromt he bad weather. I finally got a bright enough day, so I went to work and shot this. Glad you enjoyed it:-) #973724

Jan, you seem to be so good at this. Can I ask if you use anything other than window light. There seems to be no shadows on a lot of your work. I want to do still life but don't exactly know how. How do you set this up? Many thanks. Shirley #1007988

12/13/04, 2:02 p.m., natural window light, tripod, f/5.6, 1/60, ISO 200. Contrast and brightness in PSP 9.

A detail for now. BP, are
