Photo: Tomatoes Without Silicone

Tomatoes Without Silicone
Unlike in Publix’s ads, tomatoes can be very ugly. I shot this at the local produce market and you can see spots all over them. Granted, I added contrast, color, and vignetting, but I didn’t bother editing out all the spots like the professionals do. Normally I’d call it laziness, but today I’m calling it realism. These are tomatoes without silicone… no, that has nothing to do with boobs.

        1. It’s pretty close. Whenever you add contrast in RGB color mode the saturation increases also, so I returned the saturation the level it was at before I added contrast.
