Lone survivor

I shot this back in the Fall.  We hadn't had a frost yet.  This was a cherry tomato that had seen better days. 

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens
Exposure 1/100 sec @ f5.0 (Aperture Priority)
ISO 200
Curves adjusted






This one's in a little better shape. It looks almost yummy ... if you like tomato's (which I really don't). I like the contrast of the dead leaves with the live branches and the bright red tomato.

Oh boy, they have seen their better days. A suggestion: the first photo could be better if you'd crop little more from the upside.

Have a nice Wednesday, it's snowing here again... :)

Mmmm. I love cherry tomatoes. Looking forward to summer. I actually think the old one makes a more interesting shot.

It looks yummy to me. :) I was following in your footsteps yesterday. I went to Neshaminy Cemetery and the bridge with eight arches off of York rd.

that is quite the wrinkly tomato (or what used to be a tomato, eh?). Cool shots. Not a huge tomato fan myself, other than the cherry tomato, those are tasty!

You know, the first one I thought was a flower until I saw the red tomato in the next one and read the text. Nicely done.
