Default Bananas Quarterly Volume 2 Issue 1 Photo Contest!

Here we go again!

The rules, as usual:
1. One photo per entrant, please.
1a. I don't care when you took that one photo.
2. The subject should be banana fruit - how you interpret this is up to you.
3. Post your submission in this thread.
3a. You don't have to post high-res to the thread, but please have a high-res copy (300 ppi min.) on hand in case you win.
4. Our judges will pick four winners and announce them here.
5. The contest closes on February 28 at midnight Ecuador time (which I believe is EST, but I could be wrong.)

The prizes, not quite as usual:

There will be four winners. They win:
1. Publication of their photo in Vol 2 No. 1.
2. A year's print subscription.

Best of luck! You folks have really been raising the bar for the contest lately, and I look forward to seeing what you've got in store for us this time.

My submission, a hand of ripening 'Santa Catarina'. The normal photo is really much more vibrant, but uploaded versions always seems to be washed out for me, oh well!

Here is my submission: 'Dwarf Cavendish' from late summer of 2009. This one was so close to the ground that you can see the Alocasia 'Hilo Beauty' in the background, and I took this photo straight up!

Attached is my entry, but I am humbled by some of the other entries. This bunch of fruit is SH 3640, developed by FHIA.

Ooops,

They are SH 3640 fruit, one of the cultivars of FHIA that was not resistant enough to Black Sigatoka to get the FHIA designation.

I'll add the information to my previous post. This is the same bunch a few months later as my avatar.

Thanks Beth!!

That's really neat - Dwarf Brazlilan, or Goldfinger, or what are we looking at there?

It's what I thought was Misi Luki but is most likely Namwah. It's photogenic whatever it is!
