MINI_CHALLENGE # 293 : "Fruit" - RESULTS
I would have liked a few more entries but on the other hand it's a busy time with everybody preparing for the holiday season. And the entries were all outstanding, so really nothing to complain about
First some comments:
@Cavalier : 1: Nice reportage shot, 2: Great texture, 3: Stunning light on the grapes
@sarasphotos : 1: Love the depth you managed to get in this shot, 2: they almost look like cherries, 3: Never seen one of those, I would nickname it "brainfruit"
@JAG : 1: Great bold colour, 2: as #1 + good light brought out the texture of the dried pepper, 3: Nice detail and bold coloured for a banana
@grandmaR : 1: love the proud look on the ladies face, 2: looks yummie and healthy, 3: great work for an "early" class
@DavidRGillespie : 1: They all look delicious, 2: Nice and glossy, 3: great find, the very ripe one among a group that still needs some time
@RalphMoon : 1: Great simple composition, 2: Is that an easter egg in the hand of the puppet? (nice scene btw), 3: Nice play with the lighting
And now the "prizes"
3rd place (shared between 2 shots)
1) Two Fuyu
For the simple composition
2 Dried Pepper
For the minimalist composition with still nice detail due to the light
Pearls of Chardonnay - Gold Hill Vineyards, Placerville, Ca:
For the way the stunning light was captured
And the winner with first place is:
1) Hillside apples (Bad Gastein, Austria)
For the great depth by including the out of focus landscape behind the heavily loaded branch.
Congrats Sara, and I pass the baton for the next mini to you
