Candy Stripes by Enrico Bettesworth

My third entry for the 2008 Canon Photo5 Competition.
Two more to go!!!

Description
With the lead up to Christmas I thought this idea would be fun. I spray painted a candy cane white and added some new stripes using the red ribbon, giving it a whole new meaning. Photographed on a wood background, extra textures where overlaid and the image was cleaned up and enhanced in Photoshop.

    Love idea, Enrico, and very well executed. This is a high-class photo.
    It’s so good I reckon you could make a bit of money selling it as a stock image.

    love the texture – agree with Graham about the ‘stock image’. Fabulous.
