Boy, oh boy! Those would really be good in a salad or fajitas. Composition and exposure are excellent.

Omigoosh,

Superbly done! Just curious what sort of set-up did you use? Others may be curious what it took to create these.

Aloha

i set the peppers on apiece ofcharcoal gray (almost black)cardboard my daughter had used for a school project. the shots were taken outside on a cloudy day, so there were no harsh shadows. i dipped the peppers in water, hoping for a fresh, sparkling look, but most of the water just ran off, leaving far fewer droplets than i'd hoped... anyway, i took the shots from a tripod at about 1/30, f5.6. then i used the "burn" tool in PS7.0 to black out the background and make it look like the peppers were suspended in space...

i'm having 5x7 prints made of these now, and plan to mount them in one of those collage type frames that hold2 photos. with the black frame, white mat, black background and bright colors, it'll look pretty cool on my kitchen wall...
