Karela (bitter melon) and eggplant in an Indian market. I liked both the colors and the interesting shape of the karela.

I like shots of fruit and veg displays such as this one. They bring out an intensity in the colour, and here the green and purple make a good contrast. I like how you have included the chalk board in the background so in a subtle way we can tell exactly what is on display. Not sure that I would have identified the karela, it's not something I have tried.

I like Finlay, appreciate the chalk board, as I had no idea what they are. Now I know they are called Eggplants, but I still have no idea what they are!
Love the contrast in the colours between the veggies here, makes for a very nice capture.
All the best

The purple and green certainly make for a great contrast with one another. Shapes and textures stand out well here and what I also like is the lettering on the chalkboard in the background of this nice market selection.

Very cool shot of the market scene. I like division of the two different vegetables with very distingtive colors differences. Not a typical vegetable on the American diet either. More Asian food than American. Love the texture of the bitter melon, like skin of lizard and they are bitter for its name sake. You have to boil them in water twice or three times to be able to eat them. Good shot. Nostalgic food for me.

Great close up work, food for thought! Excellent combination and individually about them and as for the effect, it's very well done. Excellent in clarity, richness of color and stunnning contrast beautifully put together. A superb presentation and great notes as always. Congrats. TFS
By the way they are known in Singapore as bitter gourd and brinjal respectively.
