Thanks, Vito. Black mat boardwas used for thebase and another one was placed right behind the cookie, and the cookie was leaning against it. Light was coming in from a window behind the upright mat board, thus leaving the black totally black. This isn't precisely a b&w. I toned it slightly to mimic selenium toning, an old darkroom method of giving a warm cast to b&w. It doesn't show up well when compressed into a JPEG, but it looks ever so slightly golden in the original.

Very, very nice black and white. What is it with this site and food? cookies look yummy right about now. I really like the composition, Barb.

Thanks, Betsy.

People who spend a lot of time in front of computers get the munchies. The cookie is a Keebler shortbread. I buy them because I love them andbecause my son and husband don't like them. We grow crafty in our old age.:-)

Barbara, I love coffee and I love shortbread cookies, so on both accounts you've got me there. The simplicity of this photo, enhanced by being in b/w, entrances me. It's a great shot and also makes me want to run out to Starbucks right now :-)

"Who eats shortbread"
*do do do do do do do*
"We eat shortbread"
*do do do do do do do*

Sorry.

You can't beat a Sainsbury's cookie. Especially the triple chocolate.

And great idea bcoultry. I can see a slight tone in it. But not much. Just enough to give it an edge.

Enough to give it crunch.

Do do do do
