Art: Melon and Ham Aperitif by Artist Deanne Flouton
Served as an aperitif by friends one summer evening on the balcony of their apartment overlooking the sea, it begged for a photo before tucking into the succulent local melon draped with serrano ham and fresh cherries. My favorite aperitivo, by far! So distinctively refreshing!

When food is photographed for magazines it is unfailingly enhanced in some way or another in order to punch up the color, airbrush out unwanted artifacts, etc. This is an original untouched photo. Although the composition is pleasing to the eye in general, some retouching of color and other embellishments could significantly improve it's overall appearance.

The image below shows what it might look like with some subjective artistic tweaking.
