I like to dabble in photography and this was a compilation of some yard sale finds yesterday and lots of stuff from my garden. I wanted to share because I was so happy with it. (the nectarine and plum were additions not from my garden) Hope you enjoy the image.
It was done by merging 7 different exposures of exactly the same photograph. I’ll admit it results in a processed look but all the best of each exposure sure makes for some eye candy.

I’m enjoying—I’m enjoying!!!

Each “find’ on its own is nice, but put together like this—beautiful!

I don’t really understand the process of merging seven different exposures into the same photograph, but I do like how it turned out. There is so much depth in the photo, it looks more like a painting than a photograph to me. Cool idea!

Ditto to what Radicalfarmergal says. Very intriguing.

Tom – Fantastic image, now that you explain the multiple exposures it makes more sense how you achieved such a fantastic image. I have played a little with multiple exposures for work related images which are all panoramic shots. It takes a lot of images to make an HDR panorama. But besides the obvious selections of exposures, the arrangement of the composition has also been handled tastefully. Great job!

I’d hang that on my wall! Love the colour, subjects and textures. It does look somewhat like a painting. Nicely done.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments. It was fun to do and you are all encouraging me to try some more!

This is one of some cherry tomatoes in the garden. 3 different exposures used to compile the image.
