Not the best photo in the world but with so few entries I couldn't resist entering.

This is the first can of SPAM I have ever bought. I will not be eating it. I don't think it is as common in Canada as in the US. I remember KLICK & KAM when I was a kid , Maple Leaf Meat's version of SPAM. I hated it!

I dyed the eggs, simply boil eggs, crack the shells and soak in food colouring for a few hours.

I dont know if would be better to choose another background color besides green, but this is a very well done shot, and top score!

Cute idea. Nice use of reflections. Not sure I've ever seen anyone shell dyed hard boiled eggs and use the patterns on the insides for a shot.

I love the reflection.

Hmm, didn't realize that spam backwards is maps. Doubt that means anything. I like the reflection shot. Good lighting.

A nice idea, but the tilt doesn't work for me. (It fails the basic test ... I tilt my head to try to straighten the image up.)

Sweet! Dr. Suess at his best. That should be a new challenge - Dr. Suess. Sorry, back to your picture. The angle, lighting, and reflection are all beautiful. The green was a smart contrast to the SPAM can. 10

LOL I was thinking of doing this too, glad I didn't! Very fun and freaky pic, and somehow the Spam Lite just tickles me pink. 7

clever ;)

Maybe a different background would be better, the background makes the eggs look less green. I still really like the shot.
