A little too much glare on the table and fruit

Plain table would help

This was a really great idea. I think it would score better if it was photographed in a more 'stock photo' fashion, like on a white background at a different angle, great idea!

Pic of the basket of fruit would have probably been more effective. Funny though - very original

LOL! Great idea. It would be even better if you ditched the inconsequential glass and plate and just zoomed in on the fruit.

Very funny idea but overexposed!!

stop playing with my mind... pass me an apple ...please :)

Whats that drink company that does strange sounding flavor mixes? It would be interesting to see some of your hybrids in front of corresponding bottles :)

A little different crop and some work on the lighting (more from the front and reduce the glare on the table) would make the photograph have more impact I think.

Nice idea, nice title, just the table... I wish you focused more on the basket. Looks crazy :)

Outstanding idea! The flash is quite harsh -- try bouncing off a white card or using a difuser such as a sheet of tissue to soften the light.

such a good idea, but it just doesn't look good! the setup leaves much to be desired. you could've gotten away with just one of these mixedfruits, against a crisp dark background, with decent lighting, and it would've been stellar! but, i score for creativity too :)

Takes a second to get this, but nice idea.

That sure is some crazy looing fruit. The one thing that I found distracting in this photo was that light streal in the left upper corner.

The blue plate adds good colour, but is distracting in the composition. Nice idea with the fruit.

Nice concept but not crazy about the composition.
09/29/2004 09:40:51 PM
Very funny! Clever idea!
09/29/2004 04:26:32 PM
Maybe you could help me with my Lego set. Well done.
09/29/2004 01:45:53 PM
Very creative!
09/29/2004 11:03:13 AM
reminds me of easter eggs for some reason.

dun really understand wat's the purpose of the iced water....but nice effort anyway
09/29/2004 10:14:22 AM
Interesting composition, but I find the table top distracting... a colored tablecloth with less glare might help and would highlight the light refraction through the glass of water.

Great idea.

LOL. Great job. Talk about mixing your apples and Oranges.
