These are store-bought red pistashios. I did not 'paint' them before or after I photographed them. The title is a reference to a suggestive theme that I saw in the shot, but I guess no one else noticed it!

This is outstanding. Amazing what a good eye can do with ordinary things. WOW. Red is my favorite color, so this jumped out at me.

Great colors used here. The crimson in contrast to the light beige works well. I like the composition and the use of the lighter colored nut on the left. Very good lighting and details. 9 -danny

Doesn't meet the challenge. [1]


Just kidding. Very sumptuous shot. Like the red spot editing, although I get the urge to find more meaning in the shot than I believe there is, which prevents it from having that x-factor for me.

My kind of picture? no
10 for the challenge and I'm betting on a ribbon.

Wonderful shot, love the red and love the title ( I am from Alabama ..Alabama football ..crimson tide) :) Anyway, your lighting for this shot is great, adds focus to your subject. Great shot.

Not sure what these are but you have good colour and good shallow D O F
Not to keen on the white border but no points lost for it it may be just a little on the large side
Well done

Very nifty image! That one nut is so nicely isolated from its peers in both focus and tone. Very nice work! 9

Very effective use of color and focus contrast to make the main subject stand out.

I love the rich reds of this photo, has kind of a valentine vibe to it. I like the composition and your subject really stands out, as per the challenge details. Border is a little wide, but it's just a border, it's the image that counts. Nice job!

I'm not sure I like or understand the choice of such a strong red colour but I like the image and the way one lone nut stands out.

I love the red saturated colors you've used. The thumbnail absolutely does not do this justice. It's beautiful - great detail and composition. 8
