Challenge: Exit (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Tamron SP MF 90mm f/2.5 Macro Adaptall

Aperture: f / 8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/160

A dart through an apple sitting on a glass with sunset as a backdrop.
I tried tomato-sause to portay blood but looked way too obvious/graphic and unnecessary so just sprayed water for an added interest and freshness.
Only one directional light (cheapo 500w shop-light) placed at such an angle that the reflection shows up around the "exit wound" only. two black cardboards to direct/concentrate the light beam on the apple.
post-process:
- clone sensor dust
- curves and saturation (multiple times)
- neat image
- usm
I wish I could clone out those two light reflections from the bottom and black-dot from the top-right part of the apple.

Some worms don't mess around! I like the orange and blue around the bright red of the apple.

I like the way you have the apple by doing this an having the water drip off it it adds movement to your photo with the center being pierced
