Wonderful! I'm amazed that the apple didn't turn brown while you shot... even if you put lemon juice on it.

It's wonderful! Congrats on your ribbon and your creativity!

HAHA this is really great! Love the idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I am not sure I would see cooking in this one, but rather a great shot for a diet ad. Nice composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2009 12:56:36 AM
What a creative idea! Nicely executed :) I think it'd be a better weight loss/diet stock photo but an 8 none the less.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2009 11:19:58 PM
Creative idea! Great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2009 05:05:44 PM
Brilliantly designed shot. Excellent composition and lighting. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2009 12:11:24 PM
very nice idea, well executed, but not even remotely meeting challenge
01/18/2009 10:22:24 AM
good idea...someone would buy this for a diet cookbook...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2009 06:02:46 AM
clever idea :-) the edge of the apple is a little straight above the zip, because a I presume you've put another piece of apple inside?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2009 04:04:45 AM
cute idea, lots of work, good composition, 10 points!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2009 07:46:45 PM
good effort, creative
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2009 02:14:17 AM
love this idea. but it's not really cooking in my opinion.
01/16/2009 09:17:35 PM
Great use of props. The lighting works well since you prevented any sharp reflections in the apple.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2009 12:45:31 PM
love the concept and very impressed at how real it looks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2009 07:47:46 AM
great idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2009 12:42:05 AM
ingenious!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2009 11:36:57 PM
That is very clever. It is a nicely composed and exposed photo too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2009 07:23:55 PM
How clever!!! :D By far my favorite, due mainly to the creativity of the shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2009 01:58:28 PM
Cool idea! I might have upped the saturation on the apple a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2009 01:35:03 PM
I like the idea, well executed. Though I would have liked to not be able to see the tiny bit of red skin above the zipper.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2009 10:06:04 AM
You have WAY too much time on your hands :-) This is really a great concept and execution. Wouldn't be surprised to see it on the front page. The only distracting thing are the odd lines on the table surface. Maybe a touch more front lighting would have added a bit of depth.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2009 05:14:51 AM
Apple cleavage! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2009 06:52:53 PM
wow relaly cool! how would that be done? ....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2009 05:55:38 PM
saw this very recently but the open zip revealed orange peel inside. Good luck - well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2009 08:40:49 AM
This isn't a photo of cooking.
01/14/2009 05:18:03 AM
extremely well photoshopped and good idea. I think a nice red unspeckled apple would add to this
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2009 02:32:46 AM
Really cool idea. I really appreciate the creativity.
