Spoons for amuse bouche (bite-size appetizers). My husband got a recipe book in the mail today for amuse bouche that reminded me that we had those spoons. I don't have a real set up for taking photos in the new house yet (don't even have my tripod ready), so this was quite a precarious setup. Tried to eliminate reflections, and when I couldn't get them all to go away, I decided to at least have them where I think they add to the image. Shot at ISO 400 because of the lack of tripod. Adjusted white-balance in CS2 (got that new ... love the fact that I can make adjustments ... I may just start shooting RAW again). Levels, curves, healing tool (another great feature I'm rapidly falling in love with), colorization, and neatimage.
