Little bit quick and simple but we are eating this tonight so I guess it counts :)

[Post Challenge Edit]

Wow another ribbon, thanks! Little surprised this did so well but not complaining :) I was a little torn about the blue bg as well but wanted to try using more contrasting colours and this seemed to work OK.

I like the dropping tomato, although the blue bg is a bit much.

Contrasting colors and appealingly fresh mixings along with good composition make this a terrific shot.

Nicely done. Good job using a diffused light to keep the reflection to a minimum, and great action to this shot.

This is my fav so far. Excellent choice on the background color, really emphasizes the vibrant colors of the salad.
