... is a gooseberry seed. The green blob in the center is the seed, it is a little larger than a pin head. The transparent stuff is the flesh. The shot was done using flash and a 60mm micro lens with extension tubes. I cut thin slices of gooseberry with a sharp knife then supported them over the edge of a table using a pair of pliers.

It's a peeled grape being dropped in a glass of lemon flavored vodka.

A granny smith apple being dropped into a tub or water? Great stop motion if it is, and a unique perspective too!

At first glance it looks like something being dropped into water but I think it is a macro of the inside of a glass paper weight. Hmmm, then again, it could be something green that has been frozen in water, jello perhaps or a kiwi? A very good photo for this challenge, there is no glare on the water/glass, good work.

wonderfully....confusing! Whatever it is most definitely is in focus, the colors (or lack thereof) are crisp and clear. Great job! (8)

I have no idea. Something frozen in ice. Nice and clear. I would have been inclined to cropp off some off the bottom and left to get rid of the yukky part.

Hmm, I would say it is something embedded in ice - a slice of apple perhaps?
As far as voting goes, I am basing my score on the photos technical qualities and aesthetic appeal, combined with an attempt to meet the challenge. You have a really good tonal range here, with some interesting and pleasing textures; the focus is crisp in the centre and foreground. I would have preferred the diagonal to be accenuated a little more by rotation a few degrees clockwise.

Just revisited - I think it may be a slice of apple dropped in to running water?
