Excellent shot :)

What delicate treatment Audrey. Very has a human-like fleshy quality to it. Never ever imagined I would say that about fennel. V. Cheers KMc

Mmmmmm good choice :) Nice soft light and I like the hint of reflection which removes it from the more traditional Still Life style.

A Haute Couture Fennel... Spring collection! :)
Stylish in every way.

this fennel bulb gets you off to a grand start...excellent lighting and detail...who would have thought that fennel could be so beautiful in black and white

A fine image Audrey. I've read your comment below (always thought fennel was some sort of herb! lol). I rather like the close proximity - it fills the shot, highlights the finer details and nothing is really lost from the image as it is. Also like the slightly gradient bg.
best wishes Rob

Hi Betsy, this 'thingamajig' is a vegetable! The grassy bits much used as a herb for fish dishes. The 'blub' is often used in salads and or can be roasted :)
The image itself.....what you see is actually full frame with no cropping which makes a change for me!! Having said that, I agree with you that a slight pace back may be more comfortable. The light is side on window London grey afternoon.

The lighting is wonderful, window light or soft flash? I guess I wouldn't crop so tight, show the entire thingamajig (what the hoot is fennel used for?) and maybe raise it up a bit to show more of that wonderful reflection. Oh, now I remember, I've used dried fennel before - kind of a licorice flavor. So that's what it looks like before it's dried. Interesting. Do you use the bulby thing at the bottom for anything (can you tell I cook a lot)?

This is a lovely still life Audrey. The light is beautiful. Silly me thought it was five shots of one vege.. so now I have to find another item.

Galina, you are ofcourse right about the water spots. I was in two minds about the 'clear' spot on the right, to clone or not. The one on the left...well, I was just plain lazy and hoped you won't notice it :)
Thank you for the honest comment.

Exceptional. Vote.

Aack! Like I told Betsy, I better hide my sprouted spud...classical and beautiful - very, very lovely almost porcelain...

Exceptional still life, with beautiful light and natural light.
Reflections add value and attraction, as well as background gradient.
I am not sure about drops on the table, maybe more or nothing, not sure, but I would probably clone the one on the left.
Great tasteful work, Audrey.
