The title in English, in case nobody has figured it out, is, "A Slice of Life", i just thought that would be a cliché name in this challenge, so the Norweigian translation probably won't be.

I had to decide between this shot and another, I hope I made the right choice.


I just used all the basic editing procedures in Adobe Photoshop; levels, curves, sat, hue, brightness, contrast, selective colour, and so on.

Border was then added in Microsoft Photodraw, and saved for web in Microsoft Paint.

Very striking, other-wordly feel to this. I like the color and I think the border adds to the photo (even though I would bet some are complaining about it).

Very nice job with the lighting to get the translucent tones.

Very mysterious, I really like this point of view. Beautiful texture. It might have been nice to show more of the seeds, maybe make a vertical composition and include more of the core.

Great take, one of my favorites in the challenge so far. I like how the apple seems nicely textured, and the internal glow casts a nice mood as well.

Nice work with the lighting, abit more in focus in the center, possibly a bigger DOF. 8
