I was suprised at how this turned out, I used a normal small torch and lit it up closely behind the egg. It took many many times to try and get something in focus or the right lighting, then out of the blue this one turned up. The redness of the egg is all natural not enhanced by any editing or red lighting.

Nice use of lighting I like the fact that it is recognizable yet completely different.

Sorry I have seen this one done before and yet I think it is worth something for you did a good job with it.

The glowing egg was a great choice for the backlight challenge. The warm tones of the photo are nice and comforting. However, the front and center composition seems a bit static, and doesn't give the photo much life.

I tried the same thing, your results turn out better than mine, good luck.
