Love this. It's scary, and so dumb, but it works :)

Very interesting idea. Good job of removing color. To me, the picture is a little bit grainy looking but you might have wanted that to set the mood for the photo.

Very nice photo. The b&w really works well here to emphasize the subject. Color saturation on the banana is nice and deep. It looks like there are areas (on the banana) that were accidentally made b&w? Otherwise, very cool shot.

Nice work with the colors. I like the way you turned everything else black and white. It really emphasizes the banana. This banana looks really good. I am a starving 12 year old boy in Africa. I would do anything for just one bite of this banana. You Americans waste food while I am starving. Terrible.
