Food Photo Challenge: Top Picks

By Elizabeth  ·  October 15th, 2012

Thank you to all the photographers who participated in our July Photo Challenge - hopefully all the food was just as delicious as it was gorgeous! We saw some extremely interesting ideas for how everyone interprets the concept of food.  Here are the finalists who stood out to our judges.

Susan Berger captures a gorgeous grouping of heirloom tomatoes and sunflowers.

What prickly little fellas! Christa Hartley captures the funky texture of these absurdly odd vegetables.

Who doesn’t want to try these lovely, powdery cakes? Susan Horn, we’re dying to know how these cuties taste!

The interesting color combination and concentric arcs of the grapefruit and plate make Dan DellaChiesa’s image excellently designed.

With the feel of a classical still life, Bob Deasy composes an extremely unique scene with soft, warm glow.

Lori Ziegenhagen captures the beauty of just a colander of peas with a simple, grungy vignette and a shockingly stark shadow.

 

Winner: Kim Dalberg did a truly lovely job capturing the vibrance of fresh strawberries, back lit by the gorgeous contrast of rain. An extremely unique

Congratulations to all our winners! Our October Photo Challenge is going on right now. The theme is “Fresh Perspective.” I hope you’ll join us.

    The results are an interesting mix and while I’m drawn to the cupcake, there are several others that are amazing composits.

      I’ll try to get one done in the next couple of weeks, Gene — we’ve had a couple of requests for one, but we’ve been jammed with things of late.
