Anyone For A Lightly Tossed Salad?? by thedarkroom

Anyone For A Lightly Tossed Salad??

Oh this took for ever!! I couldn't get the salad to balance, then I struggled wih the lighting and don't get me started on the processing!!

This has been through Affinity (twice) with healing, cloning and inpainting and tidied up in PhotoscapeX with painting areas I'd missed black and inserting the before photo.

Please don't look too closely as this is no where near perfect- I'm still on a very steep learning curve!!

Theme before and after processing

Why oh why didn't I stick to my original plan to discover what that twirling button does???
@wakelys I'll stick to bananas I think!!

Crazy mixed salad, fab effect. I dreamt that I did something similar with carrots last night.

That is unbelievable...I thought this was a shot of a gazillion images put together, but actually mounting the salad ...holy lettuce leaves!!!

I am glad you put in the small pre shot. I was wondering how someone is even getting this done. You are really getting good at this editing.
