    Congrats, this was one of my top pick! I didn't even notice some of the oddities going on with the background shots, they were muted enough not to distract.

    Thanks, everyone, for the comments, compliments and critique - always appreciated.

elliot - this is the Wednesday morning market in Cahors in southwest France.

Jade et al. - glad you liked the topic, though I just made suggestions. Others made the choice, so they deserve some credit, too.

To those who thought the PP a bit heavy-handed, I'm not sure I disagree. It was a rather busy scene, and I wanted to focus attention on the women interacting, with the color-match more of a sideshow.

    I think this is an interesting approach, that is, focusing sharply on the vegetables, but softly capturing the human interaction in the middleground and background. I like it.

    Interesting shot but the excessive burning and dodging on faces, bodies and onions, spoils it a bit for me. My eyes keep getting drawn to those parts of the photo and they don't want to be there. GL.

    In my top 3. The colours are so vibrant with the yellow standing out a mile. Seems a dangerous market though as there appear to be several zombies!

    a little side heavy with the yellows, but love the scene captured and probably my number one pick

    Great spotting. The two colours are obvious but also obviously not staged. This is a lovely street scene, full of colour and texture and interest. In my pics.

    An interesting shot. Match between sweater and zucchinis is perfect. There are some secondary matches of other colours which make the photo balance nicely. High in my faves.

    Light is everything and you've done a great job in highlighting the foreground while shadowing the background (I assume without resorting to PP). This one keeps moving up in my rankings. Right on theme. My only suggestion is maybe adding more canvass to the left but I don't know what is there or if you cropped this at all. A nicely timed capture.

    Perfect for the theme. I would have liked to see the entire box of squash (I think) in the lower right.

    Great shot! While there are lots of colors going on here, the matching yellows really stand out. High in my TT.

    This one jumped out at me straight away. Although it's a busy shot, there is no mistaking the interpretation of the theme. In my TT.
