Big Surprise Subject for THIS challenge, Huh?!

Here goes:
1. Subject must be the food item itself--not the utensils, tools, etc.
2. Food must be prepared and ready to be eaten--no raw produce, unless the subject is eaten raw (No, shooting it in RAW format doesn't count...).
3. No pre-packaged products.
4. That said, breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper, tea-time, midnight snack--any food--any time.
5. Points will be given for originality of subject (one wo/man's rare ahi tuna is another's raw fish), originality of title (I'm a closet punster/poet), and general Mouth-Watering-ness.

The Lensbaby has an amazing ability to make just about any subject, no matter how apparently mundane, extraordinary. I can see even a bowl of Lucky Charms being transformed into something beautiful (though I still don't recommend eating it!).

1. Camera - Any Camera (with LB attached)

I've been here two days and I haven't seen so much as a scrap of bread!

(Just a gentle reminder...I'm getting hungry...)

Patience my friend... Think of it like selling on ebay. There is always a lot of activity close the end of the contest.

Tee-Hee! Thanks Joby--Please pardon my histrionics. I spend a fair amount of my time waiting on people (my "day-job" [which I actually do at night] to make ends meet) and this week I've had more than my fair share of the impatient squeaky-wheel types.....it's just fun sometimes to play "the adversary".

LOL I really AM hungry to see what everyone has to offer.

The kitchens of the world are busy preparing meals not for the hungry mouth but for the even hungrier eye.

Sorry for the delay--Guess what I've been doing?

Tough choices...but here goes...

First Place--Mark Wade with Salsa Fresca. Love the "recipe" format. The mix of whole ingredients with the finished salsa is a wonderful touch (I love knowing where my food is coming from). Also love the way the sweet-spot plays across he bowl and the salsa and the light is lovely.

Second Place--kmac with "the artful tart" a wonderful still-life.

Third Place--Halima67 with "Cheese please!". Great abstract quality and, what can I say...I'm a fromage-FREAK.

yesmellow--Love that bokeh in the background!
maryemccabe--that focus is perfect and who can turn down chocolate chips? (is it ok if I ate them for dessert instead of breakfast?

Thanks for playing in the kitchen with me!

Your next Mark.
