didn't vote in tis challenge but if I had would have given it a 9 or 10 this so did not deserve the score it got... your take on the challenge was brilliant! well done even if your score doesn't reflect it... sadly another case of the general mass of DPC missing the boat :)

I am amazed at how many people at dpc have never seen a banana. Just goes to show you the diversity of the membership.

You've achieved the same effect here with colour. ;-Þ

Way underrated, but you can be proud of this shot and of having had the nerves to enter it!

Could have been a green banana....hard to tell with the desaturation.

I guess you could call this loss of yellow.

It's an OK picture, just not very inspiring to me

I get the banana IS yellow but B+W in a color challenge???

Dude, this photo is black and white! No really i get it, but is the fact that i know its yellow the same as it being yellow? No it is the same as taking a picture of a banana in a lightness room, if there is no light there is no color. At the same time this photo made me think, (far to much in fact) that this photo is though provoking so what do i rate it? Well it good, well focused, and balanced but will the rest of the voters see this....

Interesting.

It has to be yellow!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

nice desaturation. Clever but the shot is rather normal I think and relies too much on the desaturated effect rather than a great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

An interesting take on the challenge! From a purely photographic point of view it might have been better to take a very ripe banana that has more black markingson the skin. 6.

Where has all the yellow gone? I know my monitor settings are fine when I see yellow on all other pictures. :( This photo is way to desturated.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 07:16:32 PM
good pose, but I don't see any yellow
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 03:47:45 PM
No yellow for the 'Yellow' challenge?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 01:12:00 PM
Interesting take on yellow. I think it's BRILLIANT. :) I think you should get the OOBIE for this.

i like the out of the box thinking.

I wish I had the nerve to try black and white for a colour challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 04:45:26 AM
I like the idea of showing yellow without color. good lighting and POV. might have been even better without the dust and the textured surface.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 02:35:14 AM
it´s a banana...and the yellow? I don´t think it meets the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 12:38:27 AM
Great! You defintly conveyed the color yellow withour even having the color in the photo. good comp and focus + nice idea and execution = 10 from me!
