After a lot of brainstorming to find a good subject for "Red 2" this idea came to me: a carrot "syringe". I carved out a carrot and put a real syringe inside and made the markings afterwards. I'm not sure if it fits but this is how I see (in a funny way) alternative medicine. Oh, and I know that the lighting is not perfect so I hope I won't be voted down for that.

PP is minimal, I mean basic :P

- one curve layer
- one brightness/contrast layer
- sharpening in 3 steps

OMG ... you're a genious! That's great. This idea is great and the prop is used brilliantly (hidden where it connects to the carrot). I hope you have something this good for next week ;P

Congrats on the top ten. The idea alone deserves a higher placement, IMO.

looks like some seriously dried garlic. I think the carrot looks great but could use a bit more pop on the colour, or maybe a stronger dof. The concept is fun, but don't think I understand why the needle tip is discoloured? Nice colour choices and comp.

I really like this photo. Its creative and the green background adds a lot to the overall image. The lighting is also great, and creates nice shadows.

like your use of colors, not over sharp like a lot if images now. it seems to fall off a little in the bottom third a bit on the numbering, but great image. -9-

Took me quite a while to realise that the cloves of garlic where meant to be drops coming out of the carroy syringe. Great concept though I think I would have prefered it with the syringe only
