    An early favourite. The green arc just tops off a wonderful composition.

    Excellent idea and very well executed. I really like the green boarder on the plate and your composition is excellent. Nice detail on the seed too.

    A symphony of colours, textures and balance. I feel that I could run the seeds through my fingers. Fantastic shot.

    Composition, colors, sharpness, pattern... everything is great here. Very well done!

    Fascinating picture! Great contrast between the light browns and the turquoise! In my TF.

    Don't bother with the resizing - you've done a nice job there :-) the pic is nicely sharp with lots of texture, and I know how difficult is to achieve that with some images.
The pic itself... well... simply, I love it :-) very nice composition in portrait orientation, the almost-two-colours pattern, with the green circle, is a pleasure to look... nicely illuminated an exposed too... a peaceful image that, yes, calls for "kitchen", cooking, etc. Almost a food advertising.
An early favourite for me, and I'll be very surprised if this one doesn't finishes high, well done!!

    How wonderful to be able to grow coriander in your own garden. The choice of the bowl is a perfect compliment to the seeds - there's almost a serenity to the picture - perhaps because it is so beautifully natural.

    The composition and geometry work well here as does the dash of colour among the monotone natural/wood tones. The vertical portrait orientation adds interest. Easily in my TT (No. 1).
