Perfect DOF, further enhancing the great detailing, color and lighting.

A decent image, but you get a 3 from me for the size. 640 is annoyingly small enough. Also, if you sharpen before you add the border you won't get that 1 pixel lighter edge on your image.

One of my top 10. Great focus. Good idea to use red apple in the BG. My pick for the ribbon. Good Luck.

quite pleasant. I like how you used an apple as the BG. This should probably do well--I have a similar shot in my top three--although you may not score as high in an "apple challenge"--should be interesting to compare.
