Basket of Promise



As a child, my favorite part of Easter was the basket itself. It's always so exciting to have your basket and discover what treasures are inside and then to use your basket on your hunt. In addition I love this light. I love the light that spring brings. I appreciate the sunlight more after a waning winter's suffocating stale gray. Easter is the epitome of spring and new life, which is especially relevant as we celebrate Christ's resurrection and atonement. This is a SOOC shot done with my trusty Kodak point and shoot.

I do love how the light is reflecting and you are right- baskets are such a great part of Easter. This is such a cute basket too, it even looks nice matching with the tablecloth. Well done.

Adorable. Love the Spring colors and the little cloth that the basket is on and the basket itself. Very nice job.

Yeah maybe cus Im a guy I dont get the whole thrill of a basket. To me it is a container, but this is a nice shot of the basket!

Good pic! i like the close-up nature and soft light. The tablecloth colors compliment the basket's. Probably could stand a little post processing though: increased saturation, maybe a little contrast (medium on curves adjustment), and increase the blacks. But good job!

I love the feel of this! I want to know what is in it!! Its a very clear shot too, I think putting it on the table cloth was a great idea!
