To Clues56: I simply held my camera in my right hand and the cob of corn in the other, pressed the cob against the bottom of the camera for stability, set a fairly deep DOF (actually I took about two dozen shots with varying depths of field). The entire shot was taken around 6 pm when the sun was still in the sky but fairly low, and I made sure that I was in the shade, with background stuff fairly far away. So my fancy lighting is the sun, but in the shade.

Really nice composition. The angle of the shot leads your eyes toward the right top corner. The main focus of the corn with the lighting and reflections makes me want to take a bite. Corn looks really juicy. Yummy.

Did you no that strawberries are like fingerprints and no 2 are exactly alike? I am not sure why this shot made me remember that. Nice work.
