Well ok, yet again, I don't think this is a challenge winner. There was way too many complications of just HOW to do this to actually do it the way that I wanted - which was to have the banana peel totally wrapped around an orange with only one flap falling...

After (hours of!!) experimenting with hot glue, pins and needles, multiple ways to cut and a whole basket of oranges and bananas... I decided to change for a simpler tactic.

This is simply put on a light table in studio with an overhead softbox and and an strobe to the right with a large cup through a diffuser.

I guess it was more about the idea than the photography... this time around.

it just looks like a banana peel plunked on top of half an orange

Nice interpretation on the subject.

Although I do prefer the shots with people in them, this meets the challenge to me as it is a "creative interpretation of the theme."

not relly crossing eh?

Not following contest rules. <sorry>

Banana peel is well exposed, but that's about it. If I could see the orange better and it looked uncomfortable....
03/16/2007 10:19:09 PM
The right side is slightly blown

great symbolism, mediocre photo - 6

how strange that 2 people photographed the exact same banana / roange dealio. I can't get over that. The hues are nice here - I'm not 100% sold on the connection but it's growing on me.

I like that you think outside the square, maybe the quality of the fruit could have been better for the photo.

Someone else did almost the same thing... It's OK.

Great concept. Lighting seems a little harsh up front.

Excellent interpretation of the challenge. This one really stands out.

Very clever idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very creative idea and I like the composition. I think the lighting will hurt the score -- the color of the orange is not very strong, and the highlight seem to be blown.

show us your most creative interpretation of this theme!

Interesting take on the challenge. Exposure was too bright, though. Maybe too much flash? Can you reduce the amount, which might have made a more detailed image. Also maybe less contrast when you took the image.

Oooh...the secret life of an orange!

Not a pretty picture, don't like the composition nor the crop. Furthermore, I feel that you should have tried to fit things together more smoothly. Looks like a rush job now.

Bravo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 01:59:53 AM
it's kind of blown out, and maybe a smaller portion of orange would work better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a fun concept for this challenge! It is my opinion that the background is a bit... bland? I guess I may have liked to see more of a contrast.
