Several green apples and a wicked knife on a red glass plate on a wicker stool set in the light of the sun coming through a window. The black backdrop is actually the kitchen oven. Shot in macro mode on a tripod.

Great pic. I'll elaborate about what I like and don't like. This is a very intersting concept and very well executed except for the shadows. In my opinion, they crowd the shot too much, and they definitely make weird designs that detract the viewer's attention from the knife. Also, this photo doesn't need that red dish (? i think it's a dish) at all. Zoom in, crop things out, and be bold with your statement of green, silver, and black.

I think you could have soften the lightning a little, its a bit harsh on the areas where it comes on, But I like how the shadows split in half on the apples

very nice, I love the silver of the knife against the green apples. Wish the handle was included at the bottom right, and the apple slice is a bit blown out.

Very good work overall; just watch exposure; apples have hot spots.

I find the lighting a little too harsh, with too many overexposed patches on the left of the fruit.

love the composition, but think that the side lighting is too harsh. Theres a weird light artifact on the bottom left hand side too from the glass table. But one of my faves so far!

Little fried on the left.....still I like this shot. The texture of the knife handle the basket weave...all good. The whole shot is very pleasing. Good luck I hope this does well. I sure like it.

Clarity is great. Sure to finish on top. The green apples against the steel is a nice contrast. Very good.

very nice... I just wish that the thing the apples are on didn't have that red pattern, just plain black or other dark color would probably be less distracting... but I really like the composition and lighting.

The light is too harsh, but I like the composition and the subject matter. Also I think I would have like to have seen the rest of the knife in the frame.

Great shot, the border went a bit south on you I'm afraid. The light seems just a bit hard on my monitor but I like the over-all composition.
