It was realized using a sigma 500 super laying on the ground, driven from the onbody 20D's flash covered with my hand...

The background is a female cloth (black, the only thing who could look as a mac laptop case...

It was the last of 20 shots, I prefered this one cause of the lighting that reach the fingers in the best way...

The hardest thing was absolutely the cut of the apple, I have to thank you Marta for this :)

great idea, but apple should be green and hand posture and background are hard to connect with the firm launch.

Returning for comments. This is a cool shot. The lighting is both a postive and a negative here. I love the backlighting but the highlights in some places is a bit too extreme. Wouldn't matter normally but since this is a setup shot with controlled lighting it's a deduction. However, it still gets a 7 from me. I'd say good luck but I predict you will ribbon here.

Good job on this one. I like the lighting here, though I can't help but think that you were going for more of a silhouette on the apple.
