Thanks for all your comments guys. I had no idea this would do as well as it did, as all the 2, 3 and 4 votes can testify to.

Very simple set up.

The wife's black cardigan (which helps prevent the eggs from rolling) on a board, stick of lemongrass, and two kaffir lime leaves for the "daisy" leaves. Lighting was provided by a window at the top of the shot about 3 feet away and another at the bottom about 6 feet away. Positioned the tripod overhead and took the shot. I metered off a grey card as obviously there is a huge contrast in this shot to get the exposure spot on.

Very little PP, just increased the contrast and saturation a tad and that's it.

very imaginative!!
03/09/2010 09:57:56 PM
Cute idea. Well executed. Unusually, the over exposure of the unbroken eggs and the stalk works well here.
03/09/2010 08:49:33 PM
Awesome! I hope this does really well. Best of luck!

Creative use of your groceries... I really like the high contrast and the color. This would work well as a logo for some dairy or organic foods company.
