Wow, thanks everyone. I'm really pleased with the response on this one. When I saw these melons at a roadside stand last night, I knew that it would be a good image opportunity and it was ... I sincerely appreciate all of your comments. ~Donnarae
P.S.: I bought a melon and was cherry red, juicy and seedless. A good one!

Fabulous perspective, Donna! The lines lead you right to those ripe melons and they also mimic the lines in the melons. Well done! :-)

A lot of them ARE not as good as I had hoped they'd be when I made the image!!I guess that I'm too picky,Carolyn.
I'm lucky if I get a few good ones out of of a shoot. I just hope that I don't wear out my delete button too soon.

Thanks Carolyn and thanks everyone. I sincerely do appreciate it!.
