In the Cabbage Patch


 
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner   In the Cabbage Patch
In the Cabbage Patch
Another from the Children's Garden at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. Was told very seriously and proudly by a young boy helping in the garden that the PROPER name for this cabbage (isn't Mr. Purple Head, believe it or not :) but is Red Drumhead Cabbage...I don't know, with it's "frilly and girly" look, it definitely looks more like a Mrs. Purple Head to me but then, I'm no cabbage expert... :) :)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Resubmitted into CatchAll 10/11

  A wonderful description, Val. But the cabbage itself is photographed to perfection. And for some reason, I expect to see some hobbits in there somewhere.

  WOW!!! What beautiful lighting you captured with this head of cabbage. It is a head of cabbage, isn't it?

The lighting is wonderful, as is the sharpness and clarity, composition, flow, and details. Your mastery in photoshop shows! This is deserving of a finalist, and more. It's an awesome image.

  I thought I commented on this one the first time around, Val, but apparently not. I do remember it, though, how could I not - it is so unusual - the design, the colors, and the magnificent lighting! I love the edges - they remind me of string lights. Anyway, a wonderful image and capture! So glad you resubmitted (and the judges are too!). Congratulations - hope to see it again with Gold! (P.S. and thanks for the visit!)
