We are on the same page...good luck. I like the simple background...almost washed out. The jacket is the most interesting part of this shot to me as I like how it picks up the light.

I would have cropped this right about the elbows to increase its impact. 6

I had this idea but did not get the chance to submit. I'm curios how you positioned the apple, and have a few ideas. Also I love how you seem to be in the desert with a heavy black leather coat. good luck 8

I'm a bit surprised that I've not seen 22 entries like this; it's the 'obvious' knockoff choice. I've looked at much of the challenge so far and this is the first. So you get extra points for copying Magritte and going him one better by using a female as the model.

this probably meets the challenge in my mind better than any other images i've seen so far. technically it's great. i really like the texture and color. composition and content feel a bit careless though.
