Probably showing my age, but sometime in the late 80's or so I saw a bumper sticker saying "Imagine Whirled Peas" , a play on the "New Age" saying "Imagine World Peace". The visual image made me laugh - enough so that I have wanted to do a photograph of the visual ever since. This challenge was just enough to make me give it a whirl (sorry).

I hope someone else "gets it".

The image I submitted actually wasn't what I had planned for, but the two peas that flew out of the bowl were so serendipitous that I just had to use it. They "just happened" - for a reason I guess.

f/6.3, ISO 100, 1.3sec., Canon 24-85mm @ 35mm, crop, cloned a couple of spots, levels, curve, contrast, selective color adjustment, USM, dodge, resize.

Fun shot and great execution. The peas and water to the right really finish off the shot well. WOuldnt be the same without them. Nice work and bumping up.

Wow! I would like to know how you made the bowl rotate so fast.

OK, I was hungry, but this took it away. Not that I don't like the shot - It's a cool idea. Just the idea of peas turned baby-food... ick. I really like the two that escaped. They give the shot a clever point of interest.

Maybe not the best photo, but definitely the best photo pun.

Great idea - glad you kept the two peas on the side because they really show what's spinning.

Great shot! Love the splash of soup and two little peas - they make the shot!

I like the pun of the title and the overall compisition very much. the colors are very nice. while peas are the subject without the title they would be unrecognizable so i will have to deduct a couple of points for that. since the challenge was advanced I would have cloned out the hotspots on the blue ring.

I thought someone would do this. I would have gone with out the splatter and peas in the upper right, or had more of them.

I love this shot, nicely crisp and graphic, so strong is that portion of the shot (the bowl and peas / soup) that I would lose the peas at the top right that were ejected by the centripedal force ( :) ) I know what you were trying to do, but the image is plenty strong already. What would be nice though is a looser crop, giving the bowl more room to breath. Well done for this

I think I see whole peas in the eye of the storm.

Awesome, just awesome! I thinking about doing this myself, but you've pulled it off very nicely. Great parody.
