very nice!

470? that's insane.

However, e301 stopped to tell you he liked it - THAT is high praise indeed in my book.

I loved it then, I love it now. We need more shots like this on DPC - thank you for shooting and entering it. I'm glad you did.

way underrated. But its not DPC pretty and that's its problem. But that's also what makes it great. Ignore the score and keep shooting!

I don't really think your title works with the image - in either the straightforward sense of 'nice looking' of mythico-biblical one of The Fall. That said, I quite like the image - its absence of the sentimental careful lighting tricks makes it seem the more real for it.

I love the huge dark flattening shadow on that apple. 8

I'll bet this isn't getting the respect it deserves - I like it a lot - that's why I think others don't - but I'm a sucker for those tiny slices of DOF, great lighting here and love the angled line running through the background to give it some energy 7

It is an iteresting idea, but it doesn't convey the title, as the apple is not a very good looking one. Also its front is totally black and the bg color is not inviting.

I love this in its simplicity. The DOF and the lighting are great. I hate that many will just see an apple, that they will think you don't understand lighting. You could have shot it with a black or white background (hey, I do it all the time) but for me, this set up is much more interesting, as if this apple is in a real space and a real time. Hope that makes sense. You have just taught me something; maybe made me remember is a better statement. And for that lesson, I have to give you a 10. And a fav so next time I forget I can be reminded.

I like this, but wish I could see more of the color of the apple.

Wouldn't call this "good" looking fruit tempting hehe. But I like the tone and simple composition of this still life.
