This is the first time I\'ve tried \"painting with light.\"
Process: Purchased artificial fruit. Set up arrangement in a totally dark room. Illuminated with a medium-sized flashlight with a piece of wax paper over the light for some diffusion. Set camera to aperature priority and used the self-timer. Began the exposure and quickly turned on and off the flashlight. Shot in RAW. Post-processing included levels, brightness, and saturation. Added a border, resized for web.

Beautful lighting. Even better IMO if you had used less plastic-looking fruit. It's just a little TOO smooth. 9

very baroque. I would have liked to have seen real fruit rather than plastic, but I like the composition and color. :o)

i think that this photo has really been done well. For me this is what painting with light is all about. Well done.

Simple and nicely done still life. Like the highlights on the grapes and pear, and positioning within the frame. 10

love the asymmetrical balance but try to crop some dead space out next time

Great job, it looks like a painting to me. Assuming it's *not* it's one of my favorites. :-)

I'm not sure it meets the guidelines, but it's gorgeous 9

I'd like this better if these were real, with water droplets. Nice placement and use of negative space.
