Congrats on the top 10 finish and on your PB! Beautiful lighting. Simple and well put together - from their shapes to the dew drops to the reflection.

Beautifully done. Sensual and appetizing. Border is OK, could be thinner by one pixel. Neat advertising image with space above the subject for text :)

I like the peppers 'embracing' each other.
I love their reflection and the negative space.
I don't particularly like the head of the green pepper though; it looks as if though it's been chewed off..
I find it's just a tad bit too dark on the bottom, too, to the point where it's losing a bit too much detail.
**Edit** On a better calibrated monitor, I'm able to see more detail on the bottom of the green pepper.
The lighting is spot on.

Overall, you did a great job, especially avoiding harsh highlights, and keeping the shot interesting and moody.

Clear, sharp and nice lights and shadows - makes for a feeling of intimacy. I like it - 9

This looks like the sort of shot that gets IreneM a ribbon! One of only two tens I have given out, and my pick for a ribbon for sure! Excellent shot.
