Very nice shot, so crisp and clear, focus and DOF is spot on.

Red on white works. But white (plate) on white background took away some 'oomph' to the overall impact of this image.

I love the SDOF, and the minimal feel to the tomatos.

Are those currant tomatoes? Nice simple layout. The knife just kind of dissappears with the angle its on but it offers a good line. Nice work. bumpingup to 8.

nice minimalism, i love the contrast and crisp selective focusing

Simple and yet sophisticated! I like the lines and red touch.
If anything, you could have leveled the plate...

I love the shot. Good job with white on white (table/plate). I like the bareness of it. But after looking at it some wondered if it needed more. But my first thought was love it. The only thing that bothers me is the knife. I would like to see a hair more of it so it is not just a line through the shot.

This is one of my favourites, I love the DOF and the stark image with the little bit of red. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This image is very simple and I think there could be more, but I like the red on white coloring!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I especially like how the red sticks out on the whtie plate and background. It brings a lot of interest to the photograph.

like the simplicity, colour range 8

I really like how the tomatoes are in focus and the only color in the photo. then how the knife lies across the plate at that angle is really unique.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

love the splash of color, but the knife seems almost too obscure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 08:37:29 AM
sweet shot.

Minimalist and good contrast, somehow trying to see what's on the upper part of shot, as if there was something missing..
  Photographer found comment helpful.

at last!
A good clean shot on a table

Initially a bit hard to make out it is a knife. I would like to see one of those cheery tomatoes getting the taste of the steel
