SO not what I had planned to enter. Not expecting anything from this.

This did SO much better than I expected! Even though it dropped two whole 10ths at rollover. Beni, you have a very good eye.

Proud of you for stepping out of your comfort zone on this one, Johanna. It's so very different from your normal shots, and in a good way. So much so that I thought it was a ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' LVicari image :)

Great photo...thought it would've placed much higher!

This could be a much better image! the idea is cool, the framing is cool! the props (jacket/coat, hat, sunglasses, apple, and even the background) are perfect.

But.. still it doesn't get my total liking! :( I believe its a bit to much edited.. it seems the best focused part is the reflection of the apple in the sunglasses and the background (there is something strange!, looks like the apple is on a table, and not in your hands.. in the reflection).

pd. the model is imported to the background right? I wouldnt do this when she's wearing a furry coat!, cause it would get almost impossible to get a good job done.

Good luck in the challenge!

Scary looking. I think it's quite effective.

Wow, that's the Russian Eve here. Just like in Sokurov's movies. No, perhaps Mihalkov's. Next, you hear the gun shot and the rushing of foot steps on a hard pavement. And you know that there is no truth coming out, just the awful web of lies. Well done!

The fur coat makes this shot. Great execution.

I think I'll pass on that bite. Gives new meaning to the apple of my eye.
