Well, you are first place in MY book.

Well done, Fernando! You should have had a ribbon with this, but an HM is a wonderful showing, and this shot definitely is highly deserving!

I am sorry but this too deserves a ribbon, What a wonderful addition to the DPC archives. This is so well done that I keep looking for its ribbon. I mean, look at the expression on the face and the slackness of the body posture and how nicely it fits with the background and then the fallen and falling apples. A stroke of genius. Congratulations on your 4th place.

Great idea! I love it, and it's a great shot. I could be wrong, but I think you can see the string holding the apple up.

Excellent concept, not bad lighting, could be improved a bit with invisible string and an apple that wasn't perfectly upright.

This is a very good idea. and over all it looks really good.. but i just wish the apple was more real looking. but other then that i gave you an -8-.

I love this shot, very creative, and very well exicuted, The muted tones used work very well.

I suppose I would be quibbling to notice that this is not an apple tree. ...or that the falling apple looks to be the size of a plum. On the other hand, the photo is well made and it does mark one of science's celebrated historical events. So, since this is a photo contest and not a science project.... 7

Great photograph. I love the composition and lighting. It is perfect. My only complaint, the apple in the air is too perfect. It should be in some awkward position, and probably not as red. It looks redder and smaller than the other apples.

Great lighting, nice composition.

If I was going to nitpick I would say that ti doesn't look like an apple tree : ) but hey - what's wrong with a bit of artistic license to get a setting like this.

Love the PP - Just so let down by seeing the line from the tree to the apple.Very nice though.

I'll bet you a bazillion dollars that this will ribbon. I think it will get atleast second place, too..

10.

very nice shot, i like the spotlight effect on newton and his apples. the unfortunate thing about it, is that i can see the string that's holding the apple. if i may suggest, hanging the apple at an angle may have been better, as it looks set up here. great idea and processing though :) 8

Beautiful idea, creative and summarises science in a single frame. Outstanding from conception to delivery

Seems like a mash-up of multiple photos. Or else, your trigger finger is FANTASTIC to catch the apple on the way down. I am distracted by the placement of his right hand ...

lol - love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 09:37:44 PM
nice processing, i like the tones a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent work. Amusing, well executed and original. Added up that equals a high score!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

=)

Having seen another Newton's apple I started contemplating an almost identical shot to this should there be another Science challenge, but you got there first!

Very surreal.

Really nice set up and concept - your editing to remove the line from the apple could be a little better but it is still a nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 04:01:04 PM
hehe i thought of this idea too... you can see the string a bit, and the apple doesn't at all look like it's falling, but i like your editing.

05/30/2007 02:32:38 PM
great idea well executed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 12:06:48 PM
Cute! A little bit more cloning, I can see the string on the apple.
