    Have you ever seen children of the corn.... you'll never look at corn again in the same way. Anywho- nice picture...the black really sets it off

    It rings a vague bell... might have seen part of it. Thanks - btw, how's the colour ? I've had reports it looks a little washed out, but it seems fine here.

    I think the color looks fine. It kind of looks like the corn we had for dinner the other night. But nice balance and shadow.

    har har ;-)
    Thanks Simon. I was peeling the corn (which we had for lunch) and got to this stage and had to go off to grab the camera and strobes :)

    lol.... delaying lunch for photography.... :)

    Colour looks fine. The bottom half of the cob looks alittle washed out, but if it was darker the lovely shadows in the peeled bit would be too dark. Am I making sense?

    I think it works well... love the light and shadow combo.

    Great shot!
    Wish I grabbed my camera out on the way to Chinchilla as the corn fields went for miles!

    I don't think the colour is washed out - the green stuff on the corn...husk? I dunno whatever it's called - is not really bright green anyway...I think it's about right but the again I overexpose everything so.....

    But of course, after all the corn was going to be another hour in the oven, it could wait 5 minutes while I shot it ;-)
    One of these days I'll grow some corn myself - it's a fairly easy crop and fresh corn is just soooo tasty.
    I think it might just be a titch over, but then it suits the purpose anyway :)
