First I was going to do a shot of 'Fruit Flies' complete with various fruits with wings attached to them, but it wasn't happening for me. I started thinking of other fruit puns (as I had bought all this fruit to shoot lol) and I came up with Adam's Apple.

This shot was taken in the afternoon on the table in out dinning room. The lighting is 100% natural.

Hello from the Critique Club!

Cool pun idea and a good one to photograph. You did well with this and there are only a few things I might think about doing differently.

I think it might carry a bit more impact if it was cropped in closer so that there wasn't as much table showing...maybe having the apple moved a bit more onto the note.

The other thing I would do is have the note handwritten instead of typed...especially being from a woman. I think it would have added a bit more flare to the shot.

The only other thing might have been to have a "prettier" apple; one of those nice and photogenic shiny red ones :)

Lighting and focus both seem to be fine and colors are natural and very good. The idea is always the hardest part, and I think it's evident that some thought went into this one. Well done!

I hope this is helpful.
