Literally a last minute submission (9:55pm, Sunday). I didn't decide to enter a photo until this afternoon while I was using my computer and thought "I should just take a picture of my laptop, it's an Apple". Later I went to the store and got a variety of apples and did some shooting. This was the first time I've ever "set up" a photograph to shoot and I'm pretty happy with the final one and the outtakes.

I love Macintosh computers (using Mac OS X right now!)...and this is a very creative idea for a photograph. I might like the composition a bit more if the 'real' apples were not dividing the frame so close to the middle. Maybe a perspective shot that was further away from the fruit, looking up to the computer in the background. LanSnake

What a great title! Made me laugh out loud. This is a very clever concept and I like that there are different types of apples.

Since I work for Intel, I should give this a one.

I like the composition. Did you play with your focal point? I can see why you wanted the Apple logo in focus, but focussing the the real apples, and using a small aperature may have kept everything in focus. 6

Nice idea, but I would've liked better focus on the apples. Maybe get rid of the first green apple.
