Probably a stretch here, but liked it anyway. Saw a similar still life a while back and wanted to try it out.

Natural light

Guaze background represents the heavens.

Spilled seeds reproduction


It could just be 1 1/2 apples and three seeds artistically and minimalistically displayed and photographed.

So much can be read into this that it becomes a bit confusing. First, though, I love the desatted tones. And the gauze is an interesting texture for the bg. The apples clearly refer to Adam and Eve, and life, and sin, etc., and they are beautifully captured. But then the seeds...? Are those earth? Or heaven? I'm not sure having them oof works for the image, or maybe I'm just not understanding what's going on.
