    johncomyn - You could well be correct as this is a remake of a photo I took on 26/2/2012 for a Fujimugs challenge. I tried to improve on my previous effort as I was never happy with parts of it. This time those parts are much better to my mind but I'm not so pleased with a few other bits such as the strawberry. The strawberry in my original photo was amazing, but all I could fid this time were small to medium one with poor seeds. I can't make up my mind which version I prefer :-) . The redness on the teeth is just a reflection from the strawberry and I desaturated the fingers slightly to closer match the facial skin tone.

babysister- I do hope your model didn't hurt themselves too badly!

    Looks like a redo of a image I've seen before, if i remember correctly I preferred the previous. If I've got the wrong person please forgive me. I can't say that I find seeing someone eating at such great magnification appealing. The teeth colour and fingers seem unnatural.

    Right on theme. Red strawberry, red lipstick and red tongue and a nice bit of green for contrast. Great shot.

    This is the one I was trying to get but my model damaged her mouth. I'm glad I didn't as this is so good.

    Nice idea and nice framing. And it's definitively red !
Great shot !

    Spot on theme in so many ways... the shot I have wished to do myself :)
Beautifully executed too, good lighting and pp. Maybe, just maybe, would have liked some more negative space, also more from the black background and the fingers on the left side, to get a landscape, night so tight crop... but that's just me being picky, still my #1, great job!!

    NEAT - I expect bluntness from you ;-) . Please see my comment below regarding originality. I agree with most of the rest of your comments. Sadly my original photos wasn't as sharp as I would have liked due to failing light and rushing a bit. I did the best I could with this less than perfect original.

    I'll have to be blunt here, and I hope you don't mind, but this as original as a sunset over the ocean. Plus it seems to lack sharpness, her teeth look rather grainy and the strawberry lacks something, I just can't get the right word :)

    I'm really glad you like my photo all :-) .

kerzkavet - an earlier version had the fingers more 'pink than the face tones and that looked wrong. I desaturated the fingers a little more than the face so that they would not compete too much with the main focus of the photo.

Maike13 - I thought some might find it cliched but my thoughts are that just because there were people around before me who were able to take certain styles of photos before me that shouldn't stop me having a go at my own version of that particular type of shot. Nowadays with all the billions of photos being taken around the world there can be hardly anything truly original left to take. This will only get worse as time progresses.

It's a bit like someone doing a cover version of a well liked song. Some songs have been covered many times by many different artists, each making it their own. This is my 'cover version' of the 'strawberry lip' shot.

    Imaginative and dramatic picture, sharp and crisp.

my only minor comment would be that the fingers on the left look less saturated than the face and are a bit distracting? (though not sure how you'd get round that!)

    Strawberry, lips, tongue, all capture the theme perfectly. Love the idea and the composition is eye catching. High in my favs. Well done.

    I really like this shot, although perhaps a little cliched (I seem to have seen similar quite a few times before). Having said that, this is a really excellent example. High in my top ten.

    Thank you very much all :-) .

aoc46 - I did consider cropping it a little closer but I have often been criticised for too close crops in the past so gave it a bit more breathing space this time.

"bite part way through" - If I did that I'd have to change the title to 'you're biting me!' ;-)

    Clever, creative approach - well shot. Might be improved by:
- slightly tighter crop, removing skin areas above/below/right of lips.
- showing the bite part way through, maybe with juice dripping, would seem less posed.

    Excellent... composition, focus and lighting are right on... my #1 pick

    A bit cliche? But it's really well photographed. Nice job, high in my TT.
