Challenge: Master of Disguise (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon PowerShot SD450
Location: Queensland Australia (on my bed)
Date: Mar 5, 2006
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: Auto
Shutter: 1/6
Galleries: Humorous, Sports
Date Uploaded: Mar 5, 2006

I decided the only way to approach a 'Master of Disguise' challenge, was in a humorous manner. I liked the goofy smiles of the tennis balls ....I don't think they even notice the apple is different, and if they do, they don't give a damn. As for the apple...he is sorta the same color and sorta the same shape, yet its blatantly obvious that he is not a tennis ball. Its so stupid, its funny.
Try as I may, to get a picture that picked up more definition ( e.g.....the fuzz on the balls), I just couldn't get it. Maybe if I had higher than a five mega pixel camera...
Nevertheless, I am hoping someone may be able to advise me how to achieve a better shot with the type of camera I have.

Resized
Added Border same color as background
Unsharpen Mask
...crossed fingers.

This is a great shot and I think you could have achieved the fuzz factor with a much smaller aperture, longer shutter and tripod.

Very nice job!
