Challenge: Fruits and Vegetables II (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Olympus 18mm f/3.5 MF Wide Ange Zuiko
Location: Reykjavik, Iceland
Date: Feb 11, 2007
Aperture: f/3.5
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/25
Galleries: Black and White, Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Feb 11, 2007

A plastic apple on the armrest of my sofa. Lighting is a living room lamp and possibly the TV. Used a Olympus 18mm f/3.5 Zuiko lens for the shot on my 5D. Bumped ISO to 1600 because I couldn't get my tripos to be directly above the apple and had to hand hold the camera.

I did convert to black and white in RawShooter and the rest is various amounts of curves and USM.

Have no idea what to expect but I do at least like it. :)

Excellent recreation of some sort of old time photographical illustration. 9

I like this. It's a really cool study on light and texture. I like the kind of surreal feel it has to by the placement... almost as if it's floating or about to roll down the page.

I wonder how this more artistic approach is working out? :/ Not too DPC friendly I'd wager but it's great!

I'd probably like to see a bit more sharpness and a smaller border.

As the photo was loading, I thought it would be an onion. IMHO B&W and irregular shape of the "apple" adds little to the photo.

A very different approach. I toyed with doing B&W myself, but wasn't convinced it comes off. To be honest I'm still not sure - but it gets a vote from me for taking a different approach :-)

I've noticed I have a predisposition to score B&W shots higher than color ones in many cases. This is no exception, particularly because I think the B&W really works well to showcase the range of texture and tones here. Very pleasing result.

really like the gritty texture of this shot ... submitting a B/W in this challenge is a gamble and I think you pulled it off fantastically ...

A lovely study...I enjoy the light and placement of the fruit within the frame. The background texture is intriguing and definitely add interest, texture, and dimension...very nice.

I like the "suspended" sense of it. Artfully done.

love your gritty bg and the b and w treatment...there seems to be some artifacts on the apple...but a great image nonetheless
