There is just something about a red ripe tomato.

This is one reason that I miss summer, not being able to go out to my garden and pick tomatoes that have ripened on the vine.  I think the warm summer sun has to add something to the taste.  Store bought tomatoes just don't taste as good as home grown.   

I love a good fried egg and tomato sandwich, a taste I acquired while growing up.  Toast the bread smear it with mayo and you have a meal that is timeless in my book.

We eat those sandwiches all the time - yummmmmmmm! What a great image...those water drops and the clarity on the top of the tomato are awesome...I am now craving salsa!

I can see this as the illustration on a brocure for the local farmers' market. It just looks SO fresh--just aching for a splash of olive oil and a few ribbons of sliced basil.

Such a great crop on this one. The lighting is great and I love the drops of gold that the water makes.

An excellent picture. The light is perfect andthe water droplets add so much to the image. A great crop that really enhances the best parts of the tomato.

I love the composition - the tomato filling almost, but not quite, the frame; the sharpness of the top of the tomato coupled with the drops that are just out of focus; and the bright red of the tomato.

The sandwich sounds pretty good!
