Love your imagination here!
I wonder how it might look without the peel in the exact same position.
Even a better yet, make a whole array of them like in a Yoga class, could be extremely cool.

Nice clean shot. Glad you didnt pick a perfect banana as the few marks really add to the picture. Very nice. Bumping up.

nice photo, really ... but the frame is really not needed here, that's why i give you 5, if it was without the frame i'll go with 8,
peace

I like the vibrant color.
Nicely focused and framed as well.

I love the title. Good color on color. Too bad the stem of the banana has the dark spots.

Excellemt a winner in my book, or at least in the top 10, and on page one..... A "10" from me.....

The pose, the color, the simple background, are all terrific. 10 and a favorite.

well, that's certainly interesting...looking forward to seeing how you did this, although I suspect it's a fairly simple technique. good color, nice and sharp, don't like the border at all, but I won't hold that against you :)

Great sense of humor and interesting composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

fantastic! I love the border. and how'd you do that? the idea of a banana doing yoga is really great.

*gggg* funny title, nice picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2006 05:09:18 PM
I've seen a lot of banana photos before, but none of them as nice as this. The title is cute. I'm going to give it a 10!

Good shot. Don't care for outer part of border. Just stop at the inner black line, don't use outer yellow & black line.

ha ha ... great idea and well executed .. 9

Very nice lighting and good tone. I like this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 04:18:23 PM
Pretty and humorous.
I like it.
So simple yet so intriguing.
The border is pretty too. I guess it was a little risky to use so much yellow but it looks great.
This might be a winner.. Or atleast a top 10.
Good job.

Simple, yet creative. I can definitely feel 'Yoga' here. You did a nice job of lighting your subject. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 02:11:41 PM
Nice. Good subject and composition. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 11:14:36 AM
Nice shot. Given this was advanced editing, I would like to have seen less blemishes on the banana.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 11:06:31 AM
laughing...creative. Nice job. Good lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 10:55:23 AM
GREAT! how'd you get the banana to stand up like that!??! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 09:45:18 AM
Great title. LOL This is simple and certainly suits the challenge. Nice graphic sense. Would make a great kitchen poster. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 08:47:13 AM
Think it would be much better without the framing, but the idea of making the Bananananananana (have no idea how many na's go there) dynamic is great. 7

Really don't like the border , it adds nothing to this excellent photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 06:13:38 AM
Fits challenge,IMO over blended in the background...
07/26/2006 05:10:03 AM
simple and clear. Great shot! (8)

Perfect lighting and composition, not much in the way I could suggest on improving this shot. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 01:03:48 AM
The lighting is very pleasant. The composition is also good. Since this was advance editing you probably should have spot edited the banana to clean it up just a bit. 8.

great colour, lighting and clarity...also like the simplicity of the composition
