kiwifruit slice on a lightbox with a reversed 50mm lens.

i photoshopped my ass off. woot!

Well, look at you! Nice placing, Muckford. Way to shop your ass off without appearing assless.

Very innovative. Love the softness of the kiwifruit juxtaposed with the relative sharpness of the heart\seeds. - 8

Cute!

Very creative, a lot of attention to detail making the little seeds heart shaped as well.

Cute idea. Some of your photoshopped parts really stand out from the natural parts though, it would be nice if they were all the same tone/shade/sharpness.

Very creative and well executed!

THis is so simple but very well done. And I just noticed the heart in the middle. Alot of the detail of the actual kiwi was lost but it doesnt detract much from this. Nice lighting and you made me smile. 10

I just realized from the thumbnail that the center is a heart too. DUHHHH Really imaginative.

I love the heart shaped seed (and center) of the kiwi. Very well done. I wish the image as a whole was sharper, though. The focus looks a bit soft to me. Or the DOF is very narrow, but I can't find the focal point. 7 from me.
