Yum! This is such a warm and lovely image on a cold wintery day.
Very nice.
You know, this is not even funny anymore.... you are amazing, Julian! I remember buying clementines with the leaves on back in the UK years ago. You don't get them like that over here...
Wonderful diagonal line of the leave, giving complex geometric spaces and angles all over and highlighting the roundness of the fruit. At last, the ondulating outlines of this leave and the golden highligths on the fruit give, as if by magic, life and motion to this still life. Great !
It is gorgous! Something about your clementines that I just love!
All I can say is the Spirit of God blessed you with talent and you are so generous to share it daily with all of us. Clementine de Corse makes me want to be still and look.
Excuse me Julian, "...highlights..." is better.
