GLORIOUS IMAGE. I stared at this for a long time. Completely powerful. I have no clue what is so beauitful about this picture. The dusky-gold lighting maybe? And the low key? I haven't the faintest clue, but this is beautiful. Fabulous, unbelievable shot.

A pomme-age hommage... gorgeous hues and what a way to show folks how well centering can work for the right subjects. Excellent choices.

This is such a lovely photo. Would do very well with greeting cards. Captivating details, and a very good control of light. Good work.

Absolutely stunning range in the color palette, all sort of working together to create a masterpiece. I didn't get a chance to vote on this shot, but it deserved an 11. Added to my favorites!

I agree...it was one of my tens and it is a very striking image. Love the lighting, colors and detail and the subject stands out well. Centering was a great way to go. Congrats on your top 20 finish.

cannot really feel robt:) with all these nice comments of praise and im so happy with the favourites
in this regard i like to mention i produced some new (improved) versions the day after
wich i personally like some more..
for everyone who had chosen this as a favourite i dont mind u switching it to one of them improved versions

for those who find having trouble with the centered position (was thinking hommage..hmm..might be a fine reason to break 'the rule')
there is a non-centered in my portofolio
its nice to have them compared anyway because this centered 'rule'
seems so very 'sturdy'

This picture has the richness of a Rennaisance painting only clear and simply beautiful.

Nice work with the dried flowers, it has a painting feeling!
The only thing maybe...I'm not completely sure about the centered position of the apple...Good capture in any case! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2005 07:53:42 PM
Not many centered compositions have a real impact as this one.
It is so beautiful!
I love the golden tones and the romantic feeling all around.

I must say, I love this shot. Even in thumbnail form, my eye was drawn to it.
Colors are warm and inviting, invokes memories of christmas and apple cider :)

I hope this does well for you.

I really love the colors in this image...makes me think of autumn. It has a very "painterly" quality about it...also, It has a bit of a Victorian quality too...could it be the roses? The colors? Very romantic.

Beautiful colors and lighting.

There are so many things I like about this shot and I guess none I don't like. I give it an 8. Not a 9 or 10 because it's reserved for something special special special. But who knows If nothing else fits the space than I will bump it up.

Looks lovely, though would be better a little brighter.

Wow! love the touch of dried roses!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2005 05:31:29 PM
I really like these warm colors, a bit dark though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2005 05:17:25 PM
nice idea and wel lit, I would have liked to see a less 'flat' image, maybe a slightly different angle or the apple itself off centre.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2005 03:29:13 PM
Beautiful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2005 02:15:27 PM
I love this shot. However for me it seems either too yellow or too green, the color just seems a little strange.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2005 01:48:12 PM
Bumping up to a 9 for the breathtaking vintage look to your shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2005 12:29:20 PM
I like this effect... Maybe a tad too dark... but I think you were going for that and it does work. You captured fall in the spring!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2005 10:11:43 AM
This is what photography is about for me. This looks more real than life itself. While the subject is not overly interesting and the photo a little dark, the detail is v. impresive. I love the quality of the apple. It also looks like the apple deserves to be on a bed of roses -> it hasn't just been placed there. 9.
