Great exposure and detail. I really like the torn edge look to the frame of this picture -- goes well with the onion skin.
I saw some of the destruction on the news that the weather system brought to states west of you. Keep safe and dry, Jennnn.

Simple but surely very effective!
MONO is the way to go in your image!
I just love the sheer essence of simplicity that you captured here.

I'm glad you can see his sad face too Jenn. See his little quivering lip. A barbeque would be nice, then when you slice him you could cry with him. lol.

Fantastc Jennnn! You're getting great mileage from these onions, and rightly so, as in your hands they do become most photogenic, not normal for me, but in this case I think the mono is perfect,
and was the right choice.
Rgds., Jim
PS. Sandy's in good form tonight Grin

Just so taken with the idea of a black and white red onion!! Forecast for the coming week here looked pretty threatening with the dreaded snow signs appearing on the map!!

Well we were feeling the heat of soaring price of onion in India, The only veg adores every meal, rich or poor in many form. I would like to see in color as mentioned Red Hamburger onion.

7 Mar 2011 12:17PM
Excellent bit of work. The couple of peeling bits of skin do add something extra to the composition, wouldn't be the same if it was just plain skin.

Great choice of subject, such a simple image and yet so effective, and I'm sure it wasn't that simple to get right.
The sad miserable onion must be contemplating his demise.
