Challenge: Wacky Foods (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Sigma 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 Aspherical for Canon (Black)
Location: Newark De.
Date: Sep 25, 2004
Aperture: 22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/3
Galleries: Abstract, Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Sep 26, 2004

Used some Starfruit slices and put them on a piece of posterboard with holes in it, and backlit them through the holes with no other lights on. Heavy color editing due to the orangish tint the light gave the normally light green/yellow fruit.

Lovely shot, got by with the beauty of the shot rather than the cleverness of it. Well done.

Well done, good artistic take. Not sure it's wacky, but it works for me.

One of the best photos in this challenge. Probably not the wackiest food, but the picture is shot very well. What did you use for lighting under the stars?

My pick for the blue. The background stars could use more DOF, but I appreciate the extra creativity shown by making something special out of an already unusual fruit. The simplicity and brilliant concept really make this entry shine. (10)

Your lighting is superb! Composition - with the repeating shapes is also excellent. Exposure right one. This should finish at or very near the top of the pack

Good way to show these fruits...nice colors.

Triangulation of composition is always strong. Yours works nicely. I do however feel the overall shot is soft in focus. This is perhaps due to a wide aperture. I would think if you're wanting to include items farther back in the shot, you'd want to close down the aperture, lengthen your shutter time and use a tripod to get the image as sharp as possible. - 6

Terrific color and composition!

very pretty - when you look at a slice for a little while, the optical illusion of the glow seeming to shrink gives a dynamic quality to the photo. Is it wacky? Maybe not, but it's a good photo, anyway. I like it.

Nice use of llight to illuminate these star fruits. It gives them an exotic feel. Well done.
