but the image width, at 800 pixels, exceeds forum guidelines which suggest 700 pixels. Why? :?

Hi BP, images bigger than 700 pixels break the forum frame and we've had quite a few recently!

and I'm sorry too. My post was done at the end of a long day and was ill judged. Good to see you back with us. 8)

By the way, I really like the composition, and I'm not just saying that because I'm partial to the odd glass of wine.

Bob.

Hey BP,

I like the idea here. The grape does seem to sort of "float in mid-air" though... I wonder what would happen if you would put the "shade" next to the grape?

Heh BigPix,

That is a cool idea. Not only does it look good, but also an eye-catching effect. I could see something like that on a winery's website or on the front page of a brochure for a travel agency making trips to wineries.

Lot's of potential in this idea with many other subjects.

Cheers :-)

........ lots of grey hair, lucky to have hair..... I am a self taught PS user, I know a lot but know very little, and try to learn something new each day...... you just have to devote time to learning PS, and there is lots of info and help on the web.......

the image above is about a 2-3 minute exercise using 2 images, as the grapes were already deep etched {background removed}
