When I first saw this I thought, "Don't touch it! It's a poisoned apple! Stay Away!" :-) So, to me it was a good first impression! After all why would a perfectly good apple be positioned there like that?
Technical (Comp, lighting, color, focus):
I like the composition. With the apple being in the center you are drawn into the frame of the picture. Love the lighting and would be curious to know how you managed to get light in the perfect place on the apple there in the middle of all that brush.
The color choice is perfect. I think a red apple would have been too dark, but the green there just pops!
And the slightly oof foreground just places you POW right where you want the eye to fall.
Your photo has just a hint of evil and for me meets the challenge perfectly.
I think this is a very good artistic piece. Seems to me to be thought through well. You put the colors together very well.
Emotionally it get an A+ from me. (refer to "First Impressions")
My opinion? I like the shot! I like it alot :-) I like the effort and thought you put into the shot. I like the composition of the colors. My only suggestion to make this better would have been a crop at the bottom to get rid of the sideways c shaped branch there at the bottom as it is slightly distracting.
