Setup a creative scenery with your kitchen spices and take a photograph of it. When enlarged, this photo should be able to serve as a nice poster in the kitchen that tickles your appetite.

Your photo can contain other elements, like cutlery, plates, bowls, sauces or other food items, but the herbs and spices have to be arranged separately. This is a pre-cooking scenery. A creative setup that will enhance your cooking experience!

Congrats Olga, this would be a magic source to chop 😉 ask Staaan to have it for the Photoshop contest!

Olga.L replied to Zizounai :

Yikes, how would you chop us parsley....with carrots? Why don't you ask him simply because you are a "chopper" and I have no clue what I'm talking about when I talk "chop"

Zizounai avatarLevel 14
Zizounai replied to Olga.L :

A chop is a composite done with Photoshop. Your photo makes me think of a forest more than of parsley, it could be a base for a wonderful imaginary landscape 🤩

Olga.L replied to Zizounai :

Staaaaaaaaaaan is probably reading this so he can do a contest for the chop side.

You have followed the KISS principle and I love the glow coming off of this...did you put it through a
glow filter? Professional and worthy of hanging up in any kitchen, not only an Italian kitchen!

Thank you so much Olga, processed in PS but no glowing filter.

Thank you for the poem, it made me smile (something I can use more of lately). I really like the subdued colours especially purple with yellow which are contrasting on the colour wheel. A hint of exotica on the label and our minds are set off on a photographic, gastronomic journey. Very lovely.

Nice placing this on a banana leaf, very exotic. I would have liked to see the spices in more focus, but I do get the picture.

Wayne-Cheah avatarLevel 11
Wayne-Cheah replied to Olga.L :

Those in focus are the spices, (the subject matter); those in the background, off-focus, are peas, lentils, rice.....
