I Like my Broccoli Macro Style

I belong to a photography group on Facebook called "Macro Photo Challenges". 

Every week the admins come up with a challenge for that week and that's is the only photo you are allowed to post.  There is no prize money but a judge chooses the winners and finalists (runners up).  
They have a gold for 1st place, a silver for 2nd place and a bronze for 3rd place. Then they choose five finalists too. 

This past week the challenge was Fruits and Vegetables. 
There were alot of entries and I didn't want to do the same as everyone else. 
It took me awhile but finally I thought....Broccoli. 

This is the image I entered. 

I was awarded a finalist.  

Here are a few other images I contemplated on but didn't enter. 

Oh and the week before the category was cutlery. 

This is my Gold prize winning entry. 

Sooooo how do you like your broccoli??

Well I'm off to work now. Have a great evening everyone.

Linking with MACRO MONDAY 2.

Congratulations on your beautiful Macros, Felicia. I'll never look at broccoli the same way again!
Tom said…
I'm glade that you told me what I was looking at!
Lois said…
They are absolutely wonderful and I'm not just saying that because broccoli is my favorite vegetable!
Bethany Carson said…
Oooh, your broccoli looks awesome! If the broccoli delivered to President George H.W. Bush looked this good he might have kept it just to decorate the White House with. I'm not a huge broccoli fan either, but I do like cheesy broccoli soup...and sometimes if it's boiled just right, it's good too. Great shots! Love the one of the fork too.
I just love the taste of broccoli, and I love how you've photographed it.

All the best Jan

Well, these are just amazing, my friend! I have not seen that group but it sounds like great fun. These two are BOTH gold medal award winners. If one is not a member of the group, can they still get on and see the photos??
Debby Ray said…
Oh...I do love broccoli many different ways but a fave is drizzled with coconut oil, salt and roasted on a cookie sheet :)
