[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this colorful display at a large produce stand and country store near Avila Beach, California. The lighting was inviting but challenging, with various spotlights on the displays combined with other ambient light from windows in the background. Not my forte, but worth a try:)

PP: standard RAW adjustments, cropped a little from all sides to better contain the composition at the edges, resized, sharpened, added textured border in keeping with (or to exaggerate...lol) the country look.

Hi Karen,
What a good idea to capture! I like its warm colours and the versatility of those different objects. The frame fits very well to the composition. Probably it could have been a bit sharper and less noisy overall, but nothing serious, still a great shot.
The kitchen objects and the cook books made me hungry :-).
All the best,

Hi Karen,

Have a nice days
