Giorgio!
Congratulations on a splendid image. How wonderful to open DPC, in one of my rare computer forays, and find your image on the front page in such a prominent spot.

It's just beautiful.

How awesome is that! I love it when people have the eye and the talent to take something every day and turn it into something very special like this! It gives hope to people in "exotically-challenged" places like Texas :)

CONGRATULATIONS

Lovely lighting and perfect choice of DOF. There's just enough definition in the background to give context to the image. The water (glycerin) drops don't hurt either.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

more like apple fiesta
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 10:43:42 AM
Lovely image makes me want to grab that apple and bite into it! The warmth of the light and the contrast between the golden orange/ yellow and the green backdrop work well. The water droplets definitely add interest. The horizontal curve of the foreground apple (starting in one corner and sweeping up into the frame) and the vertical curve of the stem sweeping backwards in the opposite direction make for a really strong composition.
