The idea and the title for this happened as I was mulling over the challenge on the drive home from work. I usually have an apple as a snack for the drive. When I finish most often I'll toss the apple core out the window to the side of the road. I wonder if people that might see this behind me think I'm a litter bug? Paper, cans, etc...all go into a trash bin in my car, but I think an apple core is ok to toss as it's "natural".

Voters/viewers are either going to really like this, or quite the opposite I think. :D

Simply beautiful. (Never thought I'd say that about an apple core ;-)

Great point of light. The rest is a little dark for my taste.

ooooooo - earthy - and a crackin' take on an otherwise 'samey' challenge.

I love the shallow DoF and the lighting is great to. Well controlled exposure, with all the bits in the right place.

rock on (7)

I kinda like this. I might have set the aperture a tad higher but it's still more artful than most.
