Lovely shape, and good composition. The black and white works, but I love green and red so would like it in either case had it been in color. Good luck in the callenge. Gracious aka Grayce

Great use of black and white! I feel like the cropping is adding too much tension where the pepper meets the borders, though. I'd like to see it zoomed in or out more. I gave you a 9, but I really wanted to give a 10.

Great photo. Nice perspective I like the contrast too. The composition/cropping does very well for this. 9

I think this would have looked better in color. It would give more pop to the picture.

very simple and very elegantly done. good use of negative space and black and white. i think a tad more light could have helped this, as it loses a bit of detail in the shadows. it might have helped to give it a tonal range. 7.

Nice compostion. I like the black and white but I think this could use a levels adjustment. There are not area approaching pure black. Also what may have looked interesting (too late now of course) is to desaturate the color, and then increase the color on one channel, the same color as the pepper. Just an idea. Good crop, and other technical aspects are great. Zeissman

As a big fan of Weston I can appreciate this. Very nice control of contrast and highlights. A bit more texture in this shot would have really spiced it up for me..still..very high quality..8...hokie

grayscale makes it pop.

very nice idea, would've looked good in color, too, i'm sure. i like the composition, but your lighting is a little uneven, too dark around the stalk and highlights in various places. natural light (but not direct) usually works best for me. or some tissue in front of your light source to diffuse the light a bit. -- gr8photos (5)

Peppers are so beautifully colored, that I have to wonder why you went with black and white on this photo. The lighting is a bit rough toward the top of the photo, but not distracting from the photo. I think that the angle and framing are good. The focus and clarity are good as well. Overall nice photo. Good luck in the challenge. ~HBunch7187~
