    I should've taken a pic of these for the Hot assignment at Mission 24.

    Taken with my new Canon 50mm EF f/1.8 II lens. So far I really like it, especially for $55 (got it used from B&H).

    rebelshootsfan, Glynnis Ritchie, and 7 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      I love this green-ness. I can always appreciate a vivid photo of brightly colored produce.

      I hope they paid you for using the photo. They can't just take the image....

      Thanks for the heads-up, Tom. That's neat. Though I should probably say that these jalapenos were home-grown (not by me) and were non-poisonous.

      Firestorm, I've posted this photo with a Creative Commons license (attribution, share alike) that encourages its re-use as long as I get credit and the re-poster agrees to share anything they create from it under the same terms. I post most of my shots that way, mostly b/c I figure, "Why not?" I'm not making any money off these pics, so I might as well open them up to the world, see what they come up with.

      You might want to check out PhotoShelter. The website is www.photoshelter.com and its a photo marketplace where you keep 70% of the sales for your photos. Im actually an intern at the company, and unlike Getty or Corbis, they are out there to help photographers, not screw them over. It's completely free to set up, and they only collect 30% of your earnings when you make a sale. You also have the absolute right to pull all your images, should you want to, from their system at any time. Clearly, you shoot work that the New York Times likes, so give PhotoShelter some thought (and make some money along the way!)

      Thanks, Firestorm. I'll check it out. I like the idea.

      I love the creamy texture and shallow DOF.

      And thank you so much for the Creative Commons license. I used this image in a blog that I manage.
