Challenge: Personification (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Sony DSC-F717
Location: Florida, USA
Date: Oct 11, 2005
Galleries: Humorous, Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Oct 11, 2005

A tough challenge. I tried to find natural instances of personification, with no luck. But, during a trip to the market....

.. well enough said.

Toothpicks hold the various bits together, a softbox lighted the way, mirror for balanced light, checked levels, contrast and bumped orange and there we go.

The left is a red bell pepper, carrot foilage wrap, cheyote head (mexican squash), star anise eye in bell pepper lashes. Right is eggplant with pell pepper lips and nose, and scotch bonnet eyes. :)

Cheesy, but cute! The one on the left reminds me of Kermit the frog...sort of... Anyone for a bit of Veggie Tales? Seems a bit tilted and the texture of the backgound is a wee bit distracting (if it was mine, I'd want to straighten it up and blow out the background to pure white in editing)~

This one broke me right up!! GReat idea and well photographed. The puckered mouth still has me chuckling. A bit too much light on the one orange pepper, but now I'm being picky "10"

Very cute, very creative. Lighting okay but makes the image a little flat. Wish they had feet. Fits the challenge, but not in a way that makes me go 'wow' or laugh.

Kermit is getting old! I think you've managed to gather the grossest veggies on earth but managed to make them sing together. Love it.

Nice colors and stuff. I hesitate to give high scores to something that you had to manipulate to make look human though. 5?

very nice arrangement, i especially like the (cilantro?) scarf on the guy on the left. Perhaps i would have experimented with different background colors to see if they could have been more dynamic than plain white...
