I never know these days how to process photos - so I decided to try and just take a pleasing photo and process it as minimally as possible - get back to the basics. No more Topaz except to get rid of background noise. I clipped these apples to a branch with a clothespin, then cloned out the small part of the pin that showed in the photo. Otherwise, just some adjustment in RAW, a little sharpening of apples, and a bit of magenta adjustment to apple on right to bring out colors.

All the melancholy of autumn is here. A timeless shot, always nice to look at.

The orange tones grab, me this is great, and so so organic, even though the fruit is dead. 9

nice dof and subject, the branch top right is distracting either more of it or non of it i think would have helped.
