Natural window light, 300mm zoom lens, tripod, 400 speed film, 1/10 sec. @ f 11. (submitted a similar image a couple months ago .... now that I am scanning images in at a higher resolution and getting much better results, I am reworking some of my favorites to resubmit)

Great shot, Marie! Loved it before and I think I love it even more now! I love how I can see even the "texture" of the grapes! Can almost taste them:-) Wonderful lighting and composition as well. What category did you place this in, may I ask? (Thought I'd ask since still lifes are my hardest decision and I could see this as a "detail" and as an "element of design".) #723345
