Yes, its utterly uncreative, uninspiring and mostly cliché macro shot - with 1 hour for the rollover left and having decided I have to enter something in every open challenge to justify membership - I challenged myself to create something I had not done before!

And its not as easy as it seems when you first look at those other inspiring shots, it was a challenge indeed getting the right exposure, right focus and the right background!

Thanks for these inspiration (2 that had stuck in my head for a while)

Congratulations on your high finish - you're a bit harsh with the self-denigration. I think that this shot is awesome. I gave you a 9 for it.

Yes totally uninspired :)
But everybody has to do a shot like this some time, just to see it is harder than it seems. Congrats on the HM!

Nice image. You're right, even the cliche' shots are worth doing for the challenge, at least once. Very good job. Congrats on the HM!

One of my favorite...Well lit and focused. I have mixed feelings about the border.

looks a little too over-sharpened

Excellent lighting and color. Who knew tomatoes could be so cool?

Perfectly done. Beatiful, sharp, lovely colour and great capture of the refracted tomato.

this needs to bump up (just what you don't want to hear right...) excellent color and DOF...wow

Nice DOF on this macro. Clarity of the subject is excellent. Only angling the nail or needle in the shot would have made it better.

Nice take on the image-in-a-water-drop-hanging-off-a-syringe theme. Fabulous colors. Not voting.

lovely colors. the technique - though executed quite well here - is starting to feel really cliche, though ...

Nice capture. Not so hot on the frame though.
