outtake from the Macro V challenge.

The lemon is cut - this is a quarter of a lemon, and placed on a silver tray that has these circular lines that look like ripples. One spoon of water over the lemon to create the puddle you see.
Turned on the light (this was shot at around midnight), auto-focused, set focus to manual, turned the light off, fired the shutter, moved the flashlight around the lemon illuminating it from all sides, and voila - there is your weird lighting.

Interesting concept. Midtones appear muddy (highlights are almost blown) - perhaps color space is not sRGB or gamma issue?

good idea, but the post prod work could be better.

Whoa, that's really cool! I love the reflection, the ripples, and the deep colors. There's a real sense of motion and perfection. I have no idea what the lemon's in, and that's what makes this shot really intriguing, I guess. :-)

Kind of interesting. the reflection is a little weird. I like the circles around it, I think they add a nice 'circle' feeling especially since the 'main subject' isn't a full circle, but rather implied. It could be only 1/2 a fruit for all I know. *wink*. anyway, focus seems a tad soft on the fruit, but the dof is nice. I see your reasoning for the selected crop, but aside from the challenge, I think a crop with the fruit to the left side of the photo might have been a bit more visually appealing. Color seems a bit duller than my brain says it should be, and the bright white areas on the white part of the peel are a bit distracting. Still neat looking though. ~Heather~
