Yes I know I should be, I just don't want to make a promise I can't keep. Sometimes I can be a tad bit busy with not alot of notice so I will try.

Now, I was going to do my own setup to be as original as possible, but the following is what happens when you leave a one year old tom around anything smelling remotely yummy:

Image


SOOOO...I decided to drop this one that I took on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale, FL this past April:

Image

I'm not a big fruit fan, but when I walked past, all the colors and near-perfect lighting grabbed me, so I shot it for some reason, and now I understand why. Any karma fans out there? :) On the other side of the display (out right of picture) was a HUGE gellato (sp?) display with over 200 flavors...I snapped it too, but not showing for relevance. Don't want mods after me for wasting space. :oops:

Thats a really good picture UPSGuy!! You must have been proud that your cat could take two big chunks out of that apple! :lol:

MISC/A++, how many women slapped you at the beach before this one gave into the "Hold these grapes on your uterus and let me take a picture" line?

Code: [ Select ]
how many women slapped


Are you talking of an experience that you faced!!

You should have asked before judging others lucassix, that “women” is a friend so I didn’t have to ask for taking take picture, does that make you feel better now.

Would anyone like me to extend the comp for one more week? We might get some more entries and also would help me out too.

Let me know what you think

1 more week is good. I will try and get something posted soon, just trying to find something better than the previous entries...no luck so far.

Oh...and for ATNOS sake, the part of my photo isnt quite ripe :wink:

I believe a tomato is technically a fruit - actually, even checked on google... so much for IQ :splat:

I guess I might mention I am a complete newbie, both to photography and to Ozzu. I have surprised myself by actually mustering the courage to post in a competition thread *wow*. And I am aware that that's no excuse for a bad picture... I get the feeling there's something considerably wrong with this one, although I can't put my finger on it. The lighting feels a little wrong - it's generally dark and the light has hit the tomatoes at weird spots :oops: Phew, I just hope this doesn't get disqualified...

yep it's currently sitting as a reminder I sent myself on friday in my email so I could get to it over the weekend. I'll try for it tonight, it's been a really hectic few weeks but its all settling down now so we can get back into it all again with our comps :D

I'm also back on broadband at home again so that makes a huge difference.

Thanks!

Sure, but is it really that important? My reasoning is. it's better to have a topic which will encourage a lot more participation. I'm sure the winner won't mind.
