Herb Bouquet

The image captured here is of a sunny bouquet of herbs from my garden. It includes an abundance of lemon sage, flowering oregano, and sprigs of mint. I loved the shape and soft texture of the leaves in this summery bouquet as well as the gleam of the small glass pitcher the herbs are gathered in.

In working with this image I tried to bring out the bright details and enhance the casual charm of this arrangement. The way the texture of the leaves came to life was especially rewarding. The result is so inviting I can almost smell and taste the fragrant herbs captured in this image.
