Theme of the Week: Fruits & Vegetables

The theme for the week was Fruits & Vegetables: pictures that illustrate the delightful shapes, colors, and textures of the bountiful harvest provided by our amazing earth.

As always, there were some truly amazing entries in the
contest pool
this week. Also as always, the decision to pick a final three was not easy. Thanks to everyone who participated. Here are the ones I liked best:

Theme of the Week: Texture

This week's theme was TextureI fuzzy, furry, spiny, rough, soft, slick and shiny, and all things in between. These are photos that you just want to reach out and touch.

There were some really excellent entries in the
contest pool
this week and the decision was extremely difficult. My favorites were:

Theme of the Week: Black and White

This week's theme is a bit more challenging: entries could include any subject but the images had to be in black and white, sepia, duotones, or other monochromatic treatments.

We had many outstanding entries by many talented photographers, so it was a very difficult decision to pick only three images to post here.

Without further ado ... here they are:
