This is beautiful, Jala. You've really captured the feeling of the clementines wonderfully. I can practically smell them and can easily imagine unpeeling and eating them! Your shadows are great - those dark areas of fruit are always the hardest for me when I'm working on fruit - especially with oranges or tangerines. Thanks for adding a link to my blog - I've added yours to my blog as well. I've also been enjoying your website - you certainly have lots of interests!

Haiku Husband - gracias. Sorry, not organic. :(

Brian - thank you. Can I just tell you how freakin' long it took me to get that shadow part on the fruit right? God. It was so frustrating. In the end, I think I got it right, but man, I had to redo that area SO many times! Thanks for visiting my website, too. Yep, TOO many interests! :)

Super realistic! Even each dent in the skin is there. And the highlight has the texture of the Clementine's skin. Whoa!
I love the name too.

Loriann - Thanks. I get the song stuck in my head all the time: Oh my darlin', oh my darlin'.... It was really fun to do the highlights. You can't tell in the photo, but they're almost a light turquoise hue. Though the highlights were fun to do, they took several tries to get them to look natural, for some reason.
