Dinner Invitation

I can't even go out to dinner without my camera these days! I took this at Pappasitos on New Years Eve because...hmmm I guess I like the colors and the empty tables seemed inviting.

Title: "Pappasitos"

Camera / Lens: Canon 40D / Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom
Post-processiong: Adobe Photoshop CS3 > Duplicate Background Layer > Topaz Adjust plugin "Portrait Drama" preset > Curves Adjustment Layer to increase overall contrast > Levels Adjustment Layer to set the Black point > Merge Visible to New Layer > Cloning to remove distracting background elements.

The colors in this shot are great but I don't really care for the foreground perspective. It kind of makes me feel like I looking at the table with my chin "in" the pot plant. I might try cloning out the visible part of the pot, or loosing it via "skew". You would still have the leaves and truck for perspective. Just a thought.
