Last week, I entered several recent photos in the Commercial Appeal’s Food Photo Rodeo at the urging of my coworker and mentor Sara. The great grand prize is just a $100 gift card, but I figured that it was worth the 30 minutes, since I already have the pics, right?

Well this morning low and behold – The CA’s food writer Jennifer Biggs wrote a contest update (to clarify the contest isn’t over yet.) and calls out the heirloom tomato crostada photo I submitted, along with a few other folks. No matter why and how – it is always a funny feeling to see your name in print.

Here’s what I submitted – which photo do you like the best?
