Wow, I'm very happy about the result :D This was my first submission to DPC (or any photography challenge for that matter) ever, and I can't believe how it turned out. I have to thank everyone who voted and commented on my picture.

About the red/yellow area in the bottom left, I have no clue as to how that can be made into the same blue that you can see in front of the green apples, with Basic editing rules only. Everything I tried ruined the red apple. Would have done a retake with different light setup if there was time.

I also have to add that DPC is one of the biggest sources of inspiration for me when it comes to photography, and I am learning incredibly much from this site! Thanks everyone :)

A few simple elements - prepared, presented and composed beautifully. I'm taking notes...

Lovely crisp complimentary colours. I like this hot a lot. I would have loved to have seen the full glass apple. The yellowish tint in the bottom left corner (and also a little on the top right of the apple) detract from an otherwise superb shot. I'm guessing another flash would have helped sort this out.

I like the concept! I'm just not sure about the composition. I think for me there's too many apples, and it would have been more effective with just 2 granny smiths and the glass apple, and shot with a tighter crop. For me, the empty space in the shot doesn't really enhance the subject. I would have preferred to see all of the glass apple instead.

I like. Nice to have a use for that glass apple, huh?

I like the idea, I just wish you hadn't cut off the bottom of the glass apple.

Great job on this picture. The only thing that I think detracts from it a little bit is the warm light in the lower-left corner of the image. But removing that would probaby have a negative effect on the red apple, so it's all good. Good job.

Nice idea... but I wan't to see the lower part of the glass-apple! Great colors. I like the condensed water.

I wish the crop wasn't so tight at the bottom. Good strong image with lovely contrasting colours

the light source is really obvious on the left lower corner

The POV and crop don´t put value on the glass apple. The crop itself can reverse that issue.

Sweet pic. I like this. 10 all the way.

I would rather see the same color under all the apples - all blue would be nice. The change of color is a little distracting.
