Hmm nice idea. I don't think it looks that much like a molecule tho. I think to make it look more like one you could have used more fruit, and actually shown the sticks that hold them together, like on those huge models that you always see in films :) I do like this photo though. Very nice vibrant colours look great against the black background, and I like the water droplets on the fruit. I think if you used a fully ripened lemon it could look better, because it would be all yellow without the shade of green, but good photo none-the-less.

Was the glare on the lemon on purpose? Cool concept. 7.

Great work. - clever. Excellent execution of the black background. Nice detail. Yet it seems to lack something....not sure exactly, possibly luster or something like that, for some reason the color seems flat - just expressing what I see. Other than that, great work. 9

strong composition. not sure the water works well here though... almost detracts from the subtle texture differences between the fruits. also wonder if it didn't soften the overall focus. still, it is a great shot. (7) ~mcmurma
