Thanks everyone for all the really nice comments. I really loved this image and am so pleased that it was received well. R

The set up was simple and there was very little cropping. The hardest part was keeping the model from freezing to death due to the constant soaking she had to endure... :)

Slight crop
Selective desat
Lighten highlights and darkened shadows.
Levels adjustment and some dodge and burn.
Usm and resize.

Thanks again... Rudy

the photo seems to be somewhat of an oxymoron. While I completely understand what the image is going for, it seems to not convey heat so much as I'd like it to. Perhaps this is due to the coolness of the image or the pleasant look on the models face, but something isn't working for me. Also is that a nose stud or is that a drop of water? I'm not able to tell for sure.

I don't say this too often. But the winner and best photo in the challenge truly prevailed. You deserve it all the way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/29/2006 12:29:27 AM
I'm not too much a fan of random foods in attractive lips, but I do have to say, you did this quite nicely!! I especially love the pink color and the shading around the jawline.

I really like the tone and the water drops! cool picture 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2006 09:08:27 PM
Fantastic and sensual. Heat for sure - one comment however, perhaps the pepper should have been dry? Well done, regardless!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2006 06:17:17 PM
Would you like any side dishes with your ribbon? :)

My favourite and a sure thing to be in the top 3 (hope I havn't blown it for you). Excellent composition and fits the challenge on so many levels (bumping).

Wonderful, the moisture on the skin is great.

Unusual choice for the color of the pepper, different and I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2006 01:34:40 PM
EXCELLENT.
The lips match the pepper perfectly (color & texture).

well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2006 09:20:30 AM
Great idea, well executed, unique treatment of the challenge. Compliments on the desat of all but the pepper.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2006 03:22:45 AM
Nice crop, contrast, concept, and capture. The selective de-sat. works well with this image. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2006 04:32:12 PM
Sharp image, good composition and lighting. However, to me, the wetness and cool hues conveys "cold" which conflicts with the thought of biting the pepper.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2006 02:00:26 PM
my pick for top 3. really nice, 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2006 09:28:58 AM
This is great forethought. Nice comp, great texture, nice duotone, b&w excellent, color good, nice movement, great light, nice emotional value, overall top 3
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2006 06:53:16 AM
Superb image! The selective colour works really well. This should be in the ribbons.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2006 12:16:03 AM
would have been better if you left her lips bright red and the pepper bright green, but i like the added sweat

Condensation but not sweat. Symbolism is not quite right - but a good image none-the-less.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2006 10:08:02 AM
Very cool, I mean hot photo. I know you probably heard it before; I would have liked a little more saturation on the lips. Other than that perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 11:26:33 PM
Nice.. good call on the water. Subdued colors accentuate the theme as the imagination is invited to participate. Nicely done.
