This picture scored a point or two higher than it should have. Luck. Stop wasting your time.

I love that you desaturated everything but the bananas. The yellow really brings out the bananas in a composition that is already pretty good into something great. Excellent effect.

Ahh, the terrible 4th place. I've been there. You're doing well, but I've still got you beat (for our camera) bwahahaha, although barely. Let's both get ribbons next week.

Really fun idea. Desaturating the color was a great idea; the bananas really stick out.

You know.. I've slipped on a banana peel in england. I was walking home from university, and I saw a banana peel on the ground, from afar, and I ignored it.. except, when I got closer, my boobies obstructed the view, and I stepped on it, and whamo, I was on the floor! darn that hurt... and all the drivers on the side of the road got a free view. ANYWAY! on to the picture. Very cute... Good choice of desaturation of the rest of the colours. did you try any white balance? that white wall on the right is a pain in the bum.
