Welcome to the Photography Contest!

Welcome back for another round of the DC Photography contest, come and show us what you've got! 

 

This time, the theme is: Vegetables

 

Submission deadline: March 19

 

Voting deadline: March 29

 

Rules:

- One entry per person.

- A photograph is defined as an image made using a camera or phone camera

- Screenshots are not allowed

- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.).

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo; you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

- Winner hosts the next contest.

Well, GF and I kinda went mostly vegetarian recently, and whatever she cooks is really tasty, but it seriously does not look like anyone wants to see a photo of it XD

I probably have something, just haven't been properly able to check as yet! I thought it was a fun subject. :D

I think it's an interesting subject! I found an old picture that fits, but I've been considering taking a new one and haven't had the chance to set it up yet to see if I can make it work.

Just haven't had any photo-worthy veggies, yet. Maybe after next trip to the market.

I'm entering with the purple pepper that I grew last season. It was delicious and I was so proud it grew nicely. Can't wait until spring here so I can try to grow some more.

Purple is the very first color that it goes to, kind of like a green banana.

We aren't looking for the best vegetable. We are looking for good photographs. A field of demolished cabbages might look fantastic!

Romanesco. I was so excited to find this at the store. I've had it from a restaurant once but I've never cooked with it. I think I'm going use it in a pasta dish where I normally use broccoli.

This topic was really fun! I experimented with a few different setups, but I knew from the moment I found the romanesco that this was the shot I was going for. I made a little album of the other pictures I was pleased with, as well as a "behind the scenes" type shot, and my backup plan if none of these worked out (the pumpkin).

I've only ever HEARD of it - and everyone in the family except me is veggie (2) or vegan (2 more.)

 

Come to think of it I think I thought it was some kind of lettuce...

I have actually seen it in a market around here, but I think they called it green cauliflower, if i am not mistaken. The romanesco name was new to me.

It's particular about its growing conditions from what I know of it.
