The red background really makes this one pop. Fine work. Congratulations on your well-deserved ribbon.

I also took a picture of a chocolate-dipped strawberry, but wasn't satisfied with the results. So therefore, I didn't enter it into the challenge. But this one truly deserves the ribbon it won!! Good job! Very appetizing indeed!!

Congrats on your first ribbon! It's obviously not going to be your last. You pulled this off using a strawberry, for crying out loud- one of the most common subjects in this group!

The majority of this site's members have never achieved your AVERAGE score (across your first 3 challenges). What a way to start! Oh... I can see you're going to be trouble. ;-)

Congrats!
A shot WITH a frame made a top three finish.
Once in a while it works!

Well Done!

Very cool and classic shot, I would have used a contrasting background. (9)

Good luck...

The only strawberry shot I liked.
Love the lighting, background. Good focus and damn that looks yummy.

This one is definitely my favorite of the chocolate/strawberry combinations. The fruit is pretty and appetizing and the chocolate looks fresh and creamy. The background color is a good choice, I think. The lighting is very nicely done. Great job.

Definetely the best out of the strawberry shots. Excellent focus, excellent color and excellent composition. My highest rated, a 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is an amazing shot!! I'm definitely predicting that this will be a top five finisher, if not even better. I love your dof. This really is a great macro. I also love the background & the border that you have added. Simply amazing! 10!

the only chocolate strawberry photo in this competition I like. just a little too much glare on the lower part of the strawberry

great caputre. great composition and timing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/22/2004 09:42:00 AM
i think background color could be white and it may helps contrast...
07/22/2004 09:31:48 AM
nice photo but I would have used a slightly darker chocolate. I find this adds a great affect to the red strawberry. nice background, great color clarity and sharpness. also a nice touch with the dripping chocolate. <8>
07/21/2004 11:30:03 PM
Well done, quite effective a9.. after reviewing all the picture... your my winner a10 now !
I dont usually like frame... your is well done and add something to the picture.... a10 for the frame too

07/21/2004 11:05:54 PM
Very nice... did you try reversing the background colors?
07/21/2004 07:42:22 PM
There were many strawberry dipped in chocolate shots. This is my favorite of the lot and one of my favorites of the whole challenge. The background is very nice!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 06:31:25 PM
Picture perfect strawberry, lovely lighting, excellent color for the background, and good catch of the chocolate dripping. I wonder how it would have looked with dark chocolate - a bit more contrast, elegence? 9

Beautifully done! So luscious I want to lick my screen! You've captured texture and colour beautifully and the background works surprisingly well. The droplet too is just the right length and shape. Composition, with the angle of the strawberry just so, is excellent. A really professional image.

the perfect shot! a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 01:21:55 PM
Perfect lighting, composition and choice of background. Strawberries were a favorite subject in this challenge - but yours is well above the others. For me - the white line in the boprder is not needed,

strawberry-tastic
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the gradient color in the background - it compliments the colors and shades of the strawberry. It's a good close up, well positioned in the frame. The touch of green breaks up the red nicely. The drip is good too, it gives it a sense of anticipation. The only nitpick is the focus - when I view it as a whole and quickly then it seems fine, but if I look at it longer then I notice the chocolate drip is out of focus and so are the green leaves. Overall I like it, probably the better of the dipped strawberry shots.

bad colour combo, white or brown better
07/21/2004 01:56:55 AM
Nice picture, one of the best. It looks so taste
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 01:50:09 AM
Great picture - the chocolate and strawberry both look very appetizing. The lighting and composition are really good. I think a different color background would have really made this picture a 10.
