I had a tough time deciding whether to enter in this one.
I could not really find real inspiration at all, so what do I do copy from the best. This is really lame... anyway never dropped an apple yet ...
Captured at 55mm focal length, setup lighted with 2 macro flashes (which was not sufficient, needed at least another flash for the background).

After 35 drops and a very wet table , this is the end result. hopefully it is above a 5.5
What I worry about in the scoring is the word "creativity" in the description vs "any way you see fit" , man this will surely result in some unpredictable voting

I thought about doing this but after my lemon in the Brown Ribbon Challenge and that disaster I said forget it! hahaha. Basic editing wasnt good for me to do this but you did a great job!

Thank you for your comment on mine and your appreciation for my work!

And it so is...Red and Fresh. The pic conveys it well. A first glance, didn't even read the title and it looked refreshing, clean, bright and pleasing. A great shot through and though. 9

You can't fully appreciate this shot unless you've tried to shoot with this approach; you've met it in a masterful manner; great focusing and SS usage.

Like the bright color and the stop action of the water. Great timing/great shot.

WOW - absolutely well done! Aquarium? How many tries did it take until you had that shot...? ;-)

Well done. I wonder how this would have scored rotated upside down...

The first apple challenge winner's entry looked more effective although this is still a good capture with great clarity. Well done.
