Summer Tomato 2010

Summer Tomato 2010, originally uploaded by MichBaldwin.

It's summer. I can't stand tomatos. My dad grows the most beautiful tomatos though. So why not photograph them. I love the shiny skin on them and the way they sit out there gleaming. In another life I swear I was a farmer. (I kill plants, so obviously not in this lifetime.)

I like the short depth of field, and the way the 1/3rd rule is used to separate the photo in many different ways. (Taking up 1/3rd of the frame always helps guide the eye around, the tomato does some of this, the soil at the bottom and the bokeh from the green in the background does)

Anyways, I just enjoy staring at this photo, for what it's worth.
