I obviously hope this picture does well here but whether it does or it doesn't, I've actually sold it to a customer who wanted some colourful pictures for her kitchen.

post challenge:

Top ten and a 6.5 is better than I expected from this. It took very little effort to do and yet it has knocked my 'Cherries with Water' picture off my profile page and that one took me ages to do. (There's no pleasing some people!)

Like a lot of us I'm only a hobby photographer but I display some of my favorite shots at my place of work.
A customer actually commissioned me to do five colorful pictures in square format for her kitchen. This is one of the results. It's my first genuine sale so I'm thrilled.

I like the vibrant colors. Maybe a bit less lighting glare here and there, but overall nicely done.

i keep wanting to turn the yellow pepper ~160 degrees counter-clockwise. i like the simplicity of the shot the most. this would look really nice on a kitchen wall. just a bit dark for my taste but overall i like the photo.

Excellent image... and not like any others in the challenge. Should do well... the colours are bold, strong... the details and sharpness are flawless... a definite top 10.

I like this shot- very colorful nice contrast/shapes even the border is pretty! :-) high score already given just coming back to comment*

the more i look the more i think this pic is headed for the top scores :-) very nice the way u used yellow orange red and green to play against and yet with each other in this simple way to approach the challenge = neat and effective :-)
