One of the many bins of vegetables at the open markets and shops along Commercial Drive in Vancouver. Its a very "earthy" community down there, and so I think these imperfect bell peppers are not unacceptable. As Joni Mitchell said "hey farmer farmer put away your DDT, I don't care about spots on my apples, but leave me the birds and the bees.."

I really like this image.

The mix of colors, clarity and technical quality should have placed it MUCH higher. I see you got nixed for the stickers. I thought they and the other vegetable imperfections added overall interest to the image.

One of my favorites of the challenge!

Excellent shot. I love the colors and wish the one red one on the left ddn't have all that white area - the reflections aren't too bad. 10

I like all but the labels. I realize you probably grabbed this shot at a market and might have been reluctant to rearrange them. Tehehehe....I've done it. But I also got asked to stop taking pics in the store. :-(
Overall good job!

The peppers may be "imperfect" but the image is not. Kudos on a fine shot.

one thing I would have done, was to turn the peppers over that have stickers.. otherwise an interesting shot.. very colorful, and off the beaten path of photographing "perfection"

I like the colors and contrasts, and it definitely fills the requirement for filling the frame.

This is very crisp and detailed and the colors come through very vividly. This photo should do quite well, me thinx :-)

Great subject. The colors could use a little boost. Plus, the peppers with decay spots are quite unappealing, but I won't mark you down for that.
