Was just out for a walk and saw this guy/girl in a flower bed. Went back the next day with the camera.

Squirl033,

I think (it has been a while since I fooled with this pic) that I use the magic wand (picktool)in PhotoShop Elements to pick the Kale then inversed the selections and did a fill with black. I may have selected the Kale then cut to a new layer.... cannot remember exactly. I used a Nikon 8800 and tripod for the shot.

I wish everyone would tell a little more about the equipment and settings for the shots for us novices.

Wow - I never woulda believed you could take such an attractive shot of a cabbage! You should be in advertising! Very nice work. :|

* In terms of equipment / settings info, a lot of people leave the exif intact on their posts - all you need is an exif viewer such as Opanda http://www.opanda.com/en/iexif/

Really interesting photo. Ruffles and flourishes.

In terms of exif data some of my photos have it and some don't depending on which editing program I use and just how my computer feels at the moment. :roll:
