Serranos

The light was almost directly above these chili peppers and my angle of view was high, so the shadows were minimal.  I worked hard to observe and  include shadows, reflected lights and shiny highlights to add a feeling of depth and volume.  This was a fun composition to arrange - I spent many minutes with the viewfinder arranging and rearranging the chilis.

You did a great job. I've tried to paint peppers like these and wasn't able to pull it off. You've given these a great sense of form and color.

Good job arranging the composition! I love the variety of reds, oranges, and greens, too.
