Cool shot

Wow this photo is great. The colors, the fuzziness, and the lighting all add to the womb-like feeling this photo exudes. Very appropriate.

This is the most interesting shot of a pepper I can remember. I love the lighting, great idea. This makes me feel very small, as if I was miniature, and looking up at this massive pepper. Great angle, clarity and color.

very cool, almost biological/medical study here. . .
07/21/2002 01:48:00 PM
Very goos idea, and a very good achieved image.
07/20/2002 10:01:00 PM
very clever and well done
07/20/2002 06:59:00 PM
I'd like the seeds to be sharper; maybe sneaking a little soft light in from this side would help. I like the idea overall -- this would have been excellent last week!

What a neat Idea. I am guessing this is a Red Pepper
07/20/2002 03:54:00 PM
Too cool of an idea. Who would have thought of taking a picture of the inside of a pepper. (Well, you of course) I love how you even captured the "veins" on the sides. Good job.

Wicked cool! Too bad the focus wasn't just a tad sharper. I love this idea!

poor exposure and focus, this look medical.
07/18/2002 10:35:00 PM
I like this alot, the coloring, the lighting and the texture of the seeds, it's the cropping that 'bugs' me(sorry), good job. 7 cthenk

I have been thinking quite a bit about this particular photo this week. The concept is definitely something I have not seen before and it's quite impressive. I like the red and I'm wondering what it would look like with the red channel desaturated just a bit... none-the-less, a great photo :) = 9 - jmsetzler

Great use of light and color.

I find this an interesting subject. The lighting worked out well. I would like a bit more clarity; perhaps some unsharp mask would finesse this to its best.

Looks like a maggot nest. Nice picture.

I find it hard to describe with words how utterly cool this photo is. Great everything! Composition, lighting, color, subject, angle..... This ought to go straight to the top. So cool

VERY COOL! I dont read the titles untill I look at the Picture, yours surprised me ...9
07/15/2002 09:08:00 PM
Hmmm... maybe I'm a little bit partial to this one since I roast 2 red peppers EVERY Sunday to eat during the week, but this is a GREAT shot. I can't get over how vibrant the colors are and how you can see every fiber on the inside. Mmmmm .... get in my belly!

You've captured such a luminious vision.... This makes me think of the interior of a person. The abstract quality makes it all the better.

stunning and innovative study
07/15/2002 11:54:00 AM
Ooo! Very imaginative and well done, Is that oversharpening or a jpeg artifact or nothing at all I see. One of my top ten picks this challenge.

Super. Love the colors and the view. This is very creative work. Kee
07/15/2002 11:20:00 AM
Nice. The light shining through the pepper looks great. I would have framed a bit higher, so the entire seed area was in the shot. Also, it could be sharpened/focused more.

Almost pornographic :)
07/15/2002 09:53:00 AM
Cool idea!
07/15/2002 07:45:00 AM
Nice idea. I am looking at it thinking the seeds should be a little more sharper, but otherwise a great photograph.
