A little trick I learned from way back in Culinary School. In case your are wondering, I ate it when I was finished!

That's a nifty little party trick - really fits the challenge well!
I think that the score reflects an appreciation for the subject as much as anything else.
The colors work well together. I like that the apple is turned slightly, but I'm wondering what other angles you tried - maybe something from a little lower instead of above. Lighting is good. It's a bit bright on the fleshy neck and that one glaring hot spot on the right side - did you diffuse the lighting? Lighting is really difficult, and you did a good job of avoiding harsh shadows. Somehow, it even seems a bit dark still... I think that more lighting and a different angle would help it seem more 3D. I also don't really understand the anatomy. It seems like the neck should be between the wings... but then there's a 3rd wing? Maybe a different angle would help with that too - so that it would make more sense. Something is just a bit weird with this bird.
Did you use lemon juice? If not, you must've shot fast because I can barely see any discoloration.
I don't think you really needed the frame, but it looks ok. I don't particularly like colored frames, but this one is matches well enough not to detract from the image.
Excellent score! Congrats. I'm gonna go eat an apple now ;P

A beautiful image. Your photo is wonderful in the regards that the lighting highlights the main subject very well. The artistical flare on the subjects is perfect. I can't see any flaws with this one. Excellent job.

I've made little mice out of radishes, but never tried anything like this!

Well done and beautiful picture. Just a little overexposed at the neck, but still excellent.
