Bought the apple, sprayed the apple with water, put the apple in my little white boxy thingy, took the picture, adjusted the black in RAW and here we are!

I actually really like this badboy, so it will probably get smashed. I hoping for a 6.5... a boy can dream can't he?

Damn you tiny red speck! I know I will get comments on you!

POST CHALLENGE**********

Sweet! Thanks for all the great comments. It was interesting to see how they contradicted one another about the coloring...

I have now ribboned twice with food shots... I think I may be trying to do more of those in the future...

Thanks again!

Great shot, but it would be nice if the apple drops were more in focus and sharper IMO

An overall sound shot. The color, water, shadow and focus are spot on. My favorite thing here is the brown stem. Nice work with that.

nice color, contrast, lighting. Stands out among the plethora of similar apple portraits

My top pick in the series of Apple with drops. However, I think it's bit over saturated for my taste.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2009 09:43:46 PM
i like how the water drops accent the texture of the apple. makes the apple appear rough, but you know if you wiped your finger across it it would be smooth. nice comp too

Nice rich colour.

I like the colour and contrast of your photo very much. The drops of water are beautiful too. The lighting is just nice. At least you read the instruction correctly. An apple!

too much contrast, saturation and droplets for my taste
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2009 04:08:11 AM
Whats the deal? All I see is a big black box with nothing in it. Waaaayyyy to dark man. You do realize this is an apple challenge right? Probably charliebaker goin for the brown.
