'Complementary Colors' are easily seen in nature. There is nothing more appealing than fruits in colors of reds with green as in cherries, strawberries, red raspberries, apples, & watermelon. Complementary colors in foods excite the senses before you even taste them! Cherries are so delicious, is it any wonder why we have the saying that 'Life is just a bowl of cherries'. It means that life is good! My image was made w/ indirect light accompanied by a little light painting with a flashlight. I used the cover of a vintage scrap book as the background. Settings were F18 5 seconds iso 100 @50mm Topaz Glow @ 15% opacity
