I did not enjoy this challenge this week - I found it quite difficult. I had quite a few ideas, but either lacked the know-how and ability or the resources to achieve what I had in mind. So this is my "celebration" photo for this week. It is my take on a 4th of July dessert. As an Aussie living in Texas, I took a classic Aussie dessert and Americanised it - decorating it with an American flag. I took this along to a 4th of July pool party and it seemed to be a hit, but no-one wanted to cut it and desecrate the flag!
I don't think it is a particularly good photo - I would have liked a greater depth of field, but need to submit something, so this is it.
As far as editing - I cropped, used liquify and Unsharp mask. Cloned out some cream spots on the raspberries. Adjusted levels and brightness.
