I took this in my cameras macro settings with a 100 watt light on top and a defused 500 watt in front about 3 feet away. I put the peppers on a white poster board.

Greetings from the Critique Club
Congratulations on a lovely, vibrant image! For me this image definitely has the wow! factor, It is a perfect before and after illustration and it jumps out of the screen and says look at me!
I like th juxtapositon of the two peppers and the contrast with the white board.
If I was to nitpick I would say the lighing is a bit bright and the focus a little soft in parts. But I personally wouldn't change a thing in this image.

Nice idea. I think the lighting is a bit harsh. The colours are really bright and bold, but the shiny spots and dark shadow make them seem a bit overpowering.

challenge met. mmmmm ... roasted peppers. yummy! i like how the two peppers seem to support each other and are relatively similar in shape. the colors are nice and bright, yet relatively simple, red, green, black and white. your frame rounds things off well. two suggestions for change: reduce the glare on the peppers by holding a thin sheet of paper between the light source and the peppers. use the full size available (640px in the long side), especially when using a frame. your photo would have more impact when it filled more of the screen. still, i like this a lot. :)

One of my favorites this week, the colors are great and the background so nice and white. Focus is excellent. I only wish that I could see a little more of the sides of the pepers, maybe just a little bit lower angle. Super shot.

Awesome colors and nice even lighting. I have a hard time with pics of 2 items...can't seem to like the composition...could be a personal thing though. Lisa

I like this very much. I just roasted some today and ate them for lunch.

Good colour. Edges on pepper look a bit fuzzy/soft. Almost scary prospect. Meets Challenge.

Gorgeous colours. Looks like your oversharpened a little bit ... might just be JPEG compression. Nice them. I think the border complements the shot nicely. Jacko.
