Of course there is! The 'wrong' way! LOL. Aka: the way I was always taught by bending back the stem part.

LOL. I was just being tongue-in-cheek with my last response. I was taught the wrong way early in my life but eventually learned the correct way.

momoese: I just noticed that you are in L.A. FYI, the photo I submitted, Banana In A Vase, was accepted for exhibition this year at the L.A. County Fair, which begins on Sept. 5. If you get a chance check it out at the fair. The photo also won a prize at the San Mateo County Fair this year (that's near San Francisco).

So far I am still impressed with the entries, but what categories are to be considered when judging. Is it size, shape, color, type, eatable, non-eatable, context, position, or pictorialization. I can only assume the category will be pictorialization. I can only be a critic of observation in this contest until I have a nanner picture to submit in the future.
Again, Best of Luck to all entrants.

Kim,

The catagory for this month is simply "bananas". We usually judge a photo for it's overall merits.

Wow! So great to hear from our old friend in China! Hope this portends being able to stay in touch more frequently. Hi old buddy.

Kim, the contest this quarter is any interpretation of Bananas - as such the banana in a vase is of equal merit to the ae'ae with the gecko. We're judging this round on composition, crispness, technique, and impact.

Great entries so far, guys, and there's one cover shot in here as well (I'll tell you who got the Issue 4 cover at the end of the contest - I wasn't expecting to see a cover submitted, but hey - it's always a bonus when one shows up!)

Keep 'em coming!

I would guess the cover is of SimplyBanana's Musa bordelon. That's one beautiful pic!
