This is a great shot, Sanjay! Great composition, The curves of your wife's face compliment the strawberry as do the colors. Good work.

Jane, Rob - Thanks for your encouraging comments. We sure had fun trying to capture this image .
Hardest part was to have the strawberry stick out on a fondue fork from the wall behind.

Fine photo, Sanjay! It has a real surreal look to it. Great work. How much chocolate wound up on the floor?
Best,
Endre

thanks Julien !

It took us about an hour and a half from no idea to the final image. Fortunately just prior to the shot, i was playing around with some macro and strawberries, so when i saw the theme for this weeks assignment, it gave us this idea immediately.

The hardest part was to suspend the strawberry sticking out from a fondue fork and stuck to some soft white packaging material on the wall behind.

The formation of the right kind of drops of the hershy's chocolate syrup was another story.

After a few unsuccessful attempts to take it all as one image, which turned out to be rather messy, i took two consective shots, one of the strawberry (with a plate under it to catch the drip) and a second one of my wife posing (without the strawberry) under the same setup and lighting. Both the images were then put together in CS2. Overall it turned out just as we had wanted it to. Glad you all like the image.

Excellent shot! I agree with Julien...definitely has an erotic look to it.

This is very similar to an idea I had but didn't shoot. GMTA
