This is two apples spliced together and the cut is hidden in shadow.The trick is to find a green and a red one that are alike in shape and size.it's a "frankenfruit" held together with rods inside and staples on the backside.After the shot I pulled them apart,removed the rod,staples and left the apples outside for the woodland creatures to eat.

Congrats from your 71st place neighbor.

this is a clever little shot. I think had you been able to reduce those reflections, you would've scored higher.

the opposite colors of the background were a great idea to enhance the 2-in-1 apple

Strange! and interesting. I like the background colors morphing to reflect the colors of the apple. Lighting/shine on the apple is a little hot, but very clever idea for a pic. I'd like to read about how you did your background.

Neat idea.

I like how the background lighting transitions. I think it adds allot to the shot. 7

How was this done? Very good idea!

Cool idea.

Now that's clever!

If you upped the contrast a bit more, it would have hid the seam a little better. Nice idea though!

I like the thought that went into this. The specular highlights are a bit distracting, but good job with the background and everything.

Wonderful idea and well executed. Just a few gripes... I can still see the divide between the two apples, and I do wish the lighting reflection wasn't so harsh. Aside from that I like it, the colors are nice and the background fits well.

Nice job fitting the two apples together and getting the red and green background. Cool idea.

interesting idea, and I'm curious how it was done. I would have softened the lighting a tad so the highlights weren't so bright, and I wish it wasn't so dark in the middle.
