Still life

Another View of the Pupmkin Centerpiece, 9-27-09 at 4 pm, my dining room, f4.5 & 1/60, Canon EOS Rebel T1i.

For my still frame I made a pumpkin centerpiece. I love fall and love all the colors. I did a Gaussian Blur on both of them.


  1. I love these photos. They make me want to decorate my house all fall-y! The colors are great, you had really good lighting (especially for an indoor shot). For a little constructive criticism, the edges of the centerpiece are a little soft. If you create the blurry background using the macro setting on your camera, the edges will be sharper than if you add it later in Photoshop. But great composition, great saturation, great photos.

  2. I love your pumpkin decor shots, especially the nice blur you have in the foreground and background. It really helps to show off the main subject. It is also fun to see some of your D.C. images. Nice pic of the Washington Monument. Keep up the great work!
