Arundathi said...

Beautiful. I prefer the first just because it looks more natural. Lovely tomatoes!

nandita said...

i like the second one, colours are so bright!

ANJALI J. said...

Lovely pics Priya.. Both are too good, but i loved the 1st one more :)

bee said...

thanks, dear priya.

Sreelu, I was looking at your flickr stream y'day and was truly impressed by your pics. Wonderful shots ! So out with the tips now ;)

Arundathi, same here :D

Nandita, I actually loved the colored peppers, but somehow felt the pic was too empty and I did not know how else to place them. I had 2 other peppers, but they wilted away by the time I could come up with a plan!

Anjali, Thank you Anjali :)

Bee, Thank You! I tried towering the peppers, but they were so out of shape and wilting away that I had to let go of that plan :( and I realized how much work it is to get good shots !! Kudos to you guys :D

Both the pics are gorgeous Priya!!

TBC said...

Love the first pic. Can see that some editing has been done in the second case.

Hi Priya...
Both are excellent clicks... Looks awesome...

Priya said...


Namratha, thank you :)

TBC, I fiddled with the exposure and contrasts, but it looks like I used a eraser or smudge tool right? will try and put up the original in the evening.

Sukanya, Thank you :) I might be repeating myself, but I love your beauty tips, simple and do-able.

Too bad about the peppers. I liked the one with 3 peppers as the DoF added interest to the pic. The second pic looks flat because of the processing but highlights the lovely colors. I think you made a good choice to go with the grape tomatoes. They look delicious and are begging to be eaten!

Are you resizing your pics in the browser? The second one looks a little pixelated.

BTW, Towering Peppers sounds like a great name. :-D

Priya said...


Manisha, I loved the peppers too, the colors were so vibrant naa! But that initial background was a very bad choice :( Next time I buy capsicum, I'm going to get the bg right and also get the tower built ;)

And about the pics, I am linking to the 'medium' size pic in flickr, but blogger defaults them a size of 400px wide, so I change that to 550/500 every time. Is there a better way ?
