If you want a piece , just reach out and get one !!
ingredients: 1 strawberry, a dozen tooth picks,a large white paper and a hologeen desk light.Set the light this way because one can set the size of the shadow like you want it ...curves and lines ;-))..tasted delicious afterwords ..

setup like descrived above.
made the BG white ( dodge tool ) because it had a greyish tone to it , wanted to have just white for BG.
some rezizing and cropping, thats about it !

What a fantastic idea Leon . . . and wonderful execution. The white background adds great drama. It looks like vegetarians will not be able to have strawberries anymore!

Congratulations for a very creative image! You have achived a very interest, colorful and well balanced image.

What a cool idea! The thumbnail looked like a bug. Great lighting and composition. Nice original idea! JP

Hi Leon,
the idea is very creative and I like all that white in the composition balanced with the red strawberry and its shadow.
Very artistic work!

A funny and friendly looking insect you created here. Very creative. The kind of almost washed out background works great here. Great job!

Your imagination and creativity producing this strawberryosaurus if wonderful. The strawberry looks so delicious, and thanks for offering a piece. I like the set up you used. Looks like a real studio shot. My only nit pik are the overexposed areas. A quick pass over these areas with a soft Burn tool might help.

It looks like a bug but it also reminds me of ants carring something together...team work.Maybe that's because of the way the strawberry is lifted from the ground...
anyway,the photo is great!Unusual..but that's what makes it so interesting!And I ate strawberries last Saturday!;-)

Help!! The Body Snatchers are again here!!!
wow.. how can change appearance some simple objects when you see them in a different way....
well done

Beste Leon,
Geweldig id en een waardevolle tip! ga zeker eens experimenteren met deze benadering.

What an imagination! who else could thing of such a construction.. very graphical..cute little beast !
Maybe a little too bright in the background ? maybe not !

Leon, imagination running wild. The poor strawberry was killed...anything left to eat? Nice shadow and idea. Where is the cream?... you ate it before you took the photo didn't you? Hahaha.

Excelent concept! You composed the shot very well. I like all that white, even the over exposed areas! I think it creates a great contrast. It's cool idea. Well done Leon.

Wow ! Very nice one Leon
I like your pure white back ground. How did you do that ? what is 'dodge' tool ?

I don't know if a had to say small sculpture or toothpick holder... But it's nice. Special!.... Good idea!

Smakelijk, Leon. Wat een prachtfoto. Het rood in contrast met de witte achtergrond werkt natuurlijk altijd, maar wat ik echt heel mooi vind zijn de tinten in de tandenstokers bovenaan de foto; de schaduwen, resten aardbei, lichtinval daar zijn prachtig. Een meesterwerk. TFS, TFS².

Hello Leon...Colours are really vivid...I like the statue that you have created here...It seems really photogenic...Great work...


Very nice picture Leon, very modern art, I like a lot, the red is very nice.
Best regards

You sure have an imgination, Leon.
This is great, it's making me hungry for some.
Excelent work, excelent composition. Two thumbs up man.

Très originale composition, photo très nette et cadre particulièrement bien choisi!

Pas mal ! C'est fou !
ta version de PS permet des fonds blancs sympas.
J'adhère à cette créativité.
Bonne idée, bon résultat et joli jeu avec les ombres.
