Scones

It frequently happens that kitchenware or prepared foods have photographic appeal.  For example, one day I made scones in a cast iron pan having wedge-shaped sections.  The baked scones were placed on a hot pad having woven circles around the perimeter.  The appearance of this reminded me of a daisy.  The background was simply a bamboo butcher block. 

I took a snapshot with a P&S camera but I found the color in the raw image, created by the ambient light, rather distracting.  Therefore, the photo was converted into a monochrome and a given a warm tonality.

As the hot pad extended over the edge of the butcher block on the right side, the image was cropped to remove this distraction.  The left edge was then cropped to match.

The indicated shutter speed was rather slow, but there appears to be little blurring due to camera movement.

f.l.=3.9mm, aperture=f2.8, shutter=1/15 sec., ISO=400.

    I think I remember seeing this one before somewhere. *S*

    Once again how the camera can make the ordinary seem extraordinary.
