Yes, a scene! This is definitely the kind of thing I was thinking about for this challenge. This does feel like another galaxy! Very clever use of the artichokes.

I like the colours as they give a unique mood.

Good composition, clarity, and humor!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good composition. The lighting could have been a little softer, not too much though. Too soft would be unrealistic since you are shooting into the sun.

It looks like you've spent a lot of time setting this one up. The sunset looks real. Nice work.

Definetly the top of the crop. Awesome job. You have explain the setup on this one. Simply stunning

Well, I must say first that I'm not crazy about this challenge, and wish I could take all my votes back! Too many 5s. However, this is one of my favorites because it's bizarre. I like the leading line to the sun and the overall composition, particularly the artichoke in the far background. I'm not crazy about the direct flash as there is an odd disconnect of light and white balance. 6

What kind of fruit or vegetable is this hairy and velvety ball, at left? What it's trying to seem? Beautiful sky...The artichokes seems always artichokes , but this place could be Lilliput, Gulliver's land, right?

Beautiful background 8.

amazing job. i can't believe how realistic this looks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2009 02:04:24 PM
Great take on the theme! The light on the front 2 chokes is a little harsh and flat, but extra points for working to put together an ALL veggie scene!
