i'm not known for my patience and trying to stack these pears really tested it. not expecting much, would prob end up with a better score if this was advanced editing.

lit with 1 softbox camera left and a gold reflector to the right. in lightroom hit the clarity and vibrance sliders and pumped up the yellow sat 100 and orange about 25. in PS i ran 3 passes of usm and again bumped the yellow a bit. border/crop and save for web
