This was one of my ribbon picks. Good score, but I expected it to place much higher.

This would have been so much better had the tape not looked so "out of the wrapper"

I like the compliemtary red and green colors with the contrasting black a white. It really pleases the eye.

In this case, a pear shape is good!

Not voting just commenting. Lifeless stock shot, but well executed.

Very nice. So nice to see a bright backdrop instead of stark white. DOF on the tape measure works well. Kind of an ugly pair though with all the brown --- taste good though!

Good concept!

Don't know how this will do in general but I like it, nicely balanced, like the use of the tape measure, your subject is nice and sharp but also like the shallow DOF

The contrasting colors of this shot are truly eye catching. Excellent composition. 9

I don't understand the measuring tape in this image (weight loss?) but I love the contrasting red of the background and the green of the pear

Very cute and very well done. Good lighting, colors contrast and composition. Best of luck in the challenge. One of the best I've seen so far.

Good. I like the red. Simple and well done.

I love this photo, but since the pear and tape measure are isolated using the red background, I would have used a larger depth of field to bring the tape measure fully into focus.

very very good dof work and composition. red-green contrast works well too.
as there is no universally known (or say popular/accepted) dimension for a "perfect" pear (like 36-24-26), i cant say i can relate to the title but i got your point nonetheless. this should do well in the challenge.

ooh that is a bright red background, but I love the contrast between the red, green and white.

you should have ironed the tape measure. good color and focus. because of it's shape a pear might not be the perfect subject, my guess is you're someone who generally likes pears in your shots.

On a side note, you're lucky I forgot to buy carrots, asparagus and zucchini when I went shopping for the weekend so I had to go for another idea than this :)
