Sorry I put this together in 10 minutes. I just got back from the hospital. My wife gave birth to our first born 2 days ago, but I still wanted to submit something :)

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Excellent idea and very good execution. Can't help but wonder if the birth of your child helped to inspire this shot (sorry, my dad was an OB/GYN when still in practice, so used to thinking along those lines :-)

Technically, wonder if you shot handheld, as the ISO seems quite high for a stationary studio shot. Looks quite soft from about the first third of the collective fruits to the back. Artistically, it's very textured and interesting, and for a shot cobbled together in roughly 10 minutes' time, very well done, and obviously the voters liked it.

Overall a very good job esp if you were operating on next to no sleep! Hope your wife and child are well.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

CONGRATULATIONS on your new baby! And on a wonderful image! Ten minutes?! *sigh* I really need to get better at setup.

This is wonderful!

You can compare apples with oranges. Neat idea.

Is that an apple on the inside?
This is a nice concept and probably difficult, but it is lacking in some quality. The coloring of the inner most layer seems "off", and the top of the fruit borders on overexposed. Perhaps playing with the lighting some more would have fixed both of these issues.
I really like the idea behind this shot though!

Really clever and very well presented!

I've seen something similar a few days ago and I liked it. This one is even better executed.

I think maybe the light is a bit off - not sure how - just not enough red showing in the apple - still a good shot
