    Congrats finishing TT citymars! Delicious looking peppers. I have 7 kinds of peppers started from seed. I'm expanding the garden size this year :-)

    Thank you all for your comments!
kletkeman, I hadn't considered that about the 'falling' composition, but I definitely see it now. Uloo, I like the taste of red and yellow peppers, it's the green ones that leave me cold. rutgerbus, I understand your comment. I seem to be unable to achieve absolute sharpness. Here I used a tripod and a small aperture (highest number allowed on my camera) to increase the depth of field. The automatic focus should work well in the strong light. I wonder what I'm missing?

By the way, I forgot to mention one small piece of pp -- I cloned out a couple of small spots of grit on the peppers. It was a minor adjustment and hopefully does not change your opinion of the photo! Sorry 'bout that.

    I like the collors of the peppers. Maybe the overall picture could be a little bit sharper, but overall a good photo. Defenately in my top 10

    Thats about $25 worth of peppers at my market. Really like the color and crispness of the shot. Good job.

    One of the photos I considered using for this challenge was a photo I took of a pile of peppers at a farmer's market. I'm glad I didn't submit mine; this one is much nicer. Nice capture of the colors and textures and I like the way you framed the shot.

    Very nice ... composition is a touch disconcerting (everything seems to be ready to fall.) TT
