    Hi Jade: Hearty congratulations on your double. Fantastic work. I continue to learn from your photos (and comments). My apologies for being tardy - I have been going crazy at with catch-up work since I got back. Nice to take a break and look at the entries.

    Congratulations Jade. This is really a beautiful picture.
The more I look at it, the more I like it - always finding new nice details.
A deserved winner!

    Billy No trouble matching for you! Mepo's deputy? I don't know about the no noise black. I can't find it but the surface is metallic black and the background is simply a darkened room so that may be the difference.

Amberbug Thanks!

Una I worked on the light on this one! thanks for noticing.

broph You are the only one to pick up on the potato but you are right. I went looking for what we call a new potato, a type that has a smoother skin but all I had was the old style.

May 17, 2010
    The three onions (two here) have found a nice company? :-) beautiful image for sure, great light/shadow play!
There are some strange no-noise-blacks around the central elements, maybe excess of darkening in PP? (I'm sure in most screens that won't be seen, but my main PC is broken (sigh!) and my laptop screen is a very "squealer" one ;-) but I don't mind that at all here, and your beautiful pic is my #3, well done!! :-)

    Nice shot, in my top picks.

May 17, 2010
    Perfect light. In my TT.

May 17, 2010
    Beautiful composition.
Strange looking potato for my neck of the country, the dark rough skin tends to detract from the shot.
Lighting beautiful -- my number one.

    raf This time I will disagree. I tried other crops and still feel the central framing is what delivers the impact. I do sense that the image is too barren but again I don't know what I could add that wouldn't detract more, nor can I figure a better arrangement.

forkcandles. duck referencing venetian? (if so you have a skill beyond Mepo!) And I'm at least one yolk short... of an omelette - or maybe you caught my Blue Peter comment on my Apollo entry - as you can see, I am getting ready to finely chop one raw egg...oh oh, here comes Lulu~!

Franz The black reflection is unique but table reflections are a personal favourite as you may have seen in other entries of mine.

Bill That keen eye of yours. I agree these are the better onions.

Old Finn You and raf agree but as you see in my answer to him, I tried and thought this better.

Alby thanks! I'll cook up an omelette for you for breakfast one morning yet!

Melaninja Thank you! Those comments really give me a lift!

    Same person as the onions? If so I like this better. The side lighting and lovely reflections combine with the mix of textures to make this one quite lovely. The only minor quiblle is that it is a little centred. Perhaps have a little room top and one side to do something with that, or alternately a slightly more angular arrangement. Top few no doubt.

    duck egg omelette? a clean food shot well executed showing clearly the textures of the each item in the contents. it may have been a double yolker.

May 16, 2010
    Cool idea, very nice lighting and a nice composition.
This reflective surface looks familiar to me, but I can not decide from what other challenge...
Especially the potato looks great on my monitor. Very nice pattern.

May 15, 2010
    I think I recognize these onions. If that's the case, I think this is the stronger effort with more visual interest and use of space, reflection and lighting. Probably my top choice.

    I would have cropped a bit of the bottom and the right side. Anyway a beautiful pic, my first choice.

May 14, 2010
    Arranged in this way onions are more attractive!
Perfectly lighted!Great shot!

May 14, 2010
    ...yess...this the way how I immagine still life and this is that kinde of composition I like! I like everything about this work - lighting, sequence of objects, simple elegance, the base objects been placed on. Just perfect;) My 10 points of vote is yours;)
