Challenge has finished
The greatness of food, cooking, drinks, and presentation. Wonderful, surprising dishes, drinks, wines, snacks, appetizers. Raw foods, elaborate banquets, they all matter, as far as ART and BEAUTY is the first thought they invite. In this challenge the key concepts are elegance, inventiveness, uniqueness and surprise. Stands of a remote market in a forgotten land, the colorful cocktail of an L.A. club, a memorable dinner being prepared by your family. Please show FOOD and DRINKS by themselves or in relation to people who prepare, offer, or consume them. Please read carefully because the following WILL BE DISQUALIFIED: children messing with food (they are cute but this is not what this is about); pets messing with food (same as above); questionable humor or grotesque situations involving food. Images of excess or bad taste. In other words, if it is not about beauty and uniqueness about food, drinks, food preparation, history, community, etc. it doesn't belong to this challenge.

I took this shot at the famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo in 2003. Everywhere you turned around there were marvelous sites of fantastic-looking fish, many still alive, all beautiful in their own way. I was struck by the color of these octopi, rather thought them to be flower-like.
