I mostly followed Doris’ instructions on how to make a frame…  Since I used a black frame and the blog currently has a black background, you should enlarge if you really want to see it.

Post processing consisted of cropping, adding vibrancy to the rasberries and removing some of the saturation from the greenery, and added some vignette.  All that was done in Aperture.  I then sent it to PSE to be framed.

These berries were found on “Blueberry Hill.”
