I thought that a real balanced diet would include some dairy and grains as well but when thinking about it, backlighting wouldn't have been as good for those items I had, except the fruits and veggies which are a big part of a balanced diet so...

Lighting, two bulbs set in position below a plate of glass, non diffused except by the frosty glass plate. The items where strategically placed so they covered the hot spots of light and the lighting appeared even enough around the items.

I'm not sure how well this will do but hope of course that most folks like it. It's not a completely original idea but it's my twist on it :)

--------------------------------------

Thanks for the comments and faves(got 4 during voting! cool tnx).

Not knowing how well this would do, I'm happy with the 7 score, even though it's 5th place ;) Score dropped a bit after rollover. It's a tight race. I wanted to try something like this for a while now, so the challenge was a nice motivational push.

Clever composition. Your imagination clearly needs no additional seeding ;P

Technically it is not "balanced", you need other food groups.

I LOVE THIS, but far too many people have had this same idea, and originality is part of being a photographer.

Awesome framing! I can't wait to find out how you got the white part of the light to be only behind the fruit part of the shot.

even though this thing has done at DPC a lot recently, subject arrangement and the diagonal composition are very appealing here.
