This is how we actually store our bananas. The smile is done by scratching the surface, and the peal will will almost immediately turn the natural brown color.

Cropped slightly. Hue/saturation changed on the yellows.

I did not notice the smile when I looked at this picture. It's very subtle. Of course now that I know it is there I can't NOT notice. I like that you made the smile that way, rather than just drawing it on. Good idea.

The light on the banana makes the yellow very warm and friendly and the focus is crisp and detailed. The leaf at the top is a bit distracting. Perhaps if there had been more than one it might have given the idea of a tropical scene?
I didn't give this a high score because, as you may know by now (wink) the subject didn't thrill me. I did think it was one of the better executed funny banana shots, though.

I would love a banana keeper like this, BTW. :-D We hang ours from a cup hook.

Creative and cute. Maybe a little overexposed. I might have tried for more saturation.

All this banana needs is a glass of lemonade and some sun glasses! Fun idea, nice clarity.

I'm assuming that's a very small hammock and not an enormous banana. :-) Nice idea for this contest.
