ken,

even though i haven't yet had time to comment on the red pepper shot (will do so

now, LOVE IT!), i like the spontenaity of the red pepper shot much more.

this is too clean, where the red shot had that light bulb above your head feel.

this one lost the "real" for me.

Aha....great minds D O think alike. I deliberately left the scrabble of kitchen debri in the background as t h a t s the way it looks when I chop and dice my veggies. I thought it might ring a bell with the type of cook who, like me...makes a bit of a mess but enjoys the food rather than the technique and delicate measurements "real" cooks employ. For the "green" shot all I did was clone it out and crop to bow more to the "photography" guidelines to see the difference for myself. I too prefer the busy looking kitchen the other one depicts. My stir fry is next. Lovely comment (for me) Thanks...

Ken - you definitely have too much time on your hands :G

I like this as a fun shot but it's a pity you cropped the bananas and spring onions - just feel this sort of composition should show everything in its entirety. Still looking a bit soft on my screen - needs a bit of punchy contrast/saturation to liven it up a bit. Defintely got the taste buds going nontheless.

Haven't got the time for that today - too busy hanging your print in my city apartment.

No offense Ken, but those are the saddest green onions I've seen in quite a while. You didn't eat those did you? They look overdue for the bin. The peppers are making me hungry though.

Green onions don't like our fridge. (too much other green stuff to compete with) Actually, I used to chuck'em when they looked that way, but now, I find it's all camoflage. Just slide off a layer or two, and they look brand new. The stringy look of the green part of the onion caught my eye, and I like the effect. Right after my next shopping expedtion I will remake some of these. Looking at Scots wonderful colors in his posts have inspired me. Oh, ya...did I eat these? Not all of'em but I did chop up a few and chuck'm in my stir fry. Keep the comments coming, I am not offended at all. I might just end up being a better photographer, a n d a better cook to boot!
