Fig, Canvasback Texture

My friend, Randi, brought over a selection of 3 different types of figs for us to sample on Friday. We didn't eat one of them - and here it is. Not sure which type this is, but it was so beautiful in the sunlight this morning, that I had to shoot it. Upon analyzing the images of it afterwards, the stark background with the shadow was a bit too stark, even for my simplistic and stark-leaning taste. There was something just not quite right about it, so I added the canvasback texture from Kim Klassen ( http://www.kimklassencafe.com) and I like what it adds. If you look in larger sizes, it is easier to see what I'm talking about.
