i bought this jeweled looking piece of glass at A. C. Moore this past week hoping to take some totally cook shots with it. Let's just say I'm not super excited with what I was able to do. There are just too many imperfections in the glass and while it does make some cool distortions, it just doesn't sparkle. I cleaned this up with a few of The CoffeeShop Blog actions to smooth out any roughness and boost the color a bit and add a vignette to try to get the most out of this shot I could. At least i think the lines and color are pleasing.
Dinner was black beans, yellow rice, and chicken enchiladas:
Yummy but I just took a rushed shot.
Thanks for all your comments on yesterday wet hibiscus. I hope to put that water globe in a light box sometime and give it another try with another flower.
