I love the glossy shine cherries have. Once washed and dried, I pile them in a nice bowl and place them on the couch table for everyone to grab. Better than chocolates! Often the cherries disappear within a short time.
I just love when Soeren’s best girlfriend, Cosima is over for a visit. All I ever hear them is whispering and giggling. When I bring out my bowl of glossy cherries I can feel 2 pairs of gleaming eyes following me and the bowl. I hardly get a chance to put the bowl down before they grab a few handfuls and run off giggling.
Then I know what to expect – what you don’t? Sure you do – it’s time for the Weimar Cherry Pit Spitting competition! And it takes place every cherry season at our place! ;-)
- Camera: Nikon D70s

- Tripod: Bilora 1211
- Focal Length: 56 mm
- Exposure Time: 1/100 sec

- Photoshop touchups: I adjusted the color using the levels function, then using the curves tool corrected color balance by decreasing the amount of blue to fix the bluish color cast. Finally I added a new layer and setting it to “screen” mode, reducing the opacity to approx. 15%. bringing in natural light to the shot. Then adding a duplicate layer and setting it to “soft light”, which gently increases the contrast. Finally adjusting the hue/saturation to make the red pop.
