    Thanks agf, LaRee and meshal ... appreciated.

By the way .... for those who mentioned that the food was supposed to make us drool ... most people will drool a bit with severe nausea :-)

    Congratulations. I think it shows how well executed this shot is that wrinkled up old peppers won the food challenge! Well done!

    Thanks everyone! So gratifying to have finally won. I appreciate the comments and kind words. Thanks dp .... yes, it felt pretty elusive.

I shot these peppers three separate times ... only for the final shoot did I switch from a white background to the black background. I'm glad I did ... it worked so much better ...

These were originally intended for a dpchallenge, but I ran out of time and forgot them in the basement. They dried out very well :-)

    Unique and different. It doesnt exactly make me hungry but you have done a nice job with the arrangement and colors. I think to make this better you could have cloned out the rotten part of the yellow pepper. Good Luck~!

    This shot certainly doesn't make me drool as the theme calls for but it is well crafted and well shot. Perhaps the shooter was interpreting the theme from an insects point of view. Nice composition and nice colors. A favorite.

    So much more character than the traditional silky smooth pepper shots we are used to. Brings to mind those B&W head shots of old people :)

    I don't like this one as far as food goes, but I do like the picture! Good color, texture and composition, and yes - I've been guilty of pulling those out of my fridge, too!

    Really nice capture. The colors are nicely matched and the subjects are so crisp that I didn't even notice at first how much the food had rotted. (Of course, that's how you got all those interesting wrinkles and textures.)

    Kind of a 'wow' photo -- I like the composition and the variety of colors, good control of lighting, and your table surface and background are extremely well done. Strange decomposition, at first I thought your peppers were made of cellophane! Definitely in my top ten.

    Oh no, now you've given me ideas to shoot the fruit that goes past prime on the vine. Great texture in this image. I only wish the yellow pepper didn't have the big brown spot. Interesting and creative. Good luck.
