I just stumbled across this photo and I just love it. I am normally not a fan of light vignettes, but the feeling it creates here is wonderful. The variety of textures and colors in the garlic is just beautiful.

Love it, a closer crop may have added some more impact?

I love the look of this. It reminds me of herb photos that people frame and hang in their kitchens.

Simplicity at it's best! Great colors & detail. The composition works very well. I could see this hanging in some Italian restaurant. Congrats on your top 10 finish.

Nice arrangement but curious about the shading behind the garlic. Is that a natural shadow cast by the garlic bulbs? Seems a bit unnatural, that's all.

I don't know what it is exactly, but I really like this a lot.... It looks kind of...soft or blurry, but the good kind. And I really like the shadows and the background especially. Hmm--I wish I could do that! :)

Very nice. Almost painterly.

Gorgeous image. I'm guessing this is not some exotic form of garlic, and you played with color curves? Great job. Nice gradient background, if a little grainy. Nice balance and shadows. I have a feeling this will do very well.

That's the most gorgeous garlic clove I've ever seen. Very dreamy lighting and processing. Something about this looks like a colored pencil drawing or something. I'm not sure what to say about the shade of red, but I love it.

What kind of garlic is it?

Nice still life look/feel to this. I would like it more if the top corners were also grey instead of white, which is a bit distracting
