French Macaroons

Uploaded: January 24, 2010


This is a photo I shot of my son's girlfriend, Lisa's (who is a French Pastry Chef)French Macaroons! They were a gift to me from her and I thought they were so pretty and colorful that I just had to do a photo. Added a texture layer and "grunged" it up a bit for a more vintage look.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: -0.33, ExposureTime: 3/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 200, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 55.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XT
