photoblog image Pitch Black Halo

Pitch Black Halo

Amazing what a Halo filter can do to a photo... the black turned even more black... I love this one even better than the original one which I liked a lot.

I just switched the background to black, Chantal, and without a border, this would just float on the page. For me this is one of your best images ever!

BTW, what is a halo filter?
Chantal Huijbregts: Halo makes the back turn darker and the object in stages softer, fuzzier...
Stunning Chantal you certainly have a gift with these type of shots,well done !!
Chantal Huijbregts: Thanks Jim, you make me blush

Great photo Chantal
Chantal Huijbregts: Thanks Vintage
The often say: it's important what you light and what you DON'T light. Here the lots of black makes it interesting and mysterious.

The reflection is great.

I also add sometimes (a little bit of) black in my images, but I do it very selective using the selective color tool in Photoshop.
Chantal Huijbregts: Black can do a lot, but must not be too much in a photo
Mmmm knoflook! grin
Chantal Huijbregts: Yes, even garlic is worth photographing
