Agree that more slices migh help the composition however, is the focussing a tad ff? or is that my aging eyes.

Im not sure if it's bad lighting or slighly out of focus but I'm going to have another go at it tommorow (working today). I had reread the club definitions and I can photograpg vege or fruit seperate which makes it easier.

I think it's just a matter of getting the right lighting really.

Less fruit, or at least less layers, letting more light through. Interesting concept.

I like it, although as you are going for a see through effect I would suggest keeping to slices of orange, rather than using the end of the skin as they lack the detail & translucency.

And I know a tomato is technically a fruit, but it just doesn't do it for me here. But overall I like the effect and the end result.

Honestly, this picture just doesn't grab me. Not sure why, but probably because it is too busy as someone else said. I know you're doing this for competitive consideration and this is why I mention that it just doesn't have any WOW factor.

Hi aladyforty...

Nice effort

Just curious...what are you using for light source?

I suggest you user something to soften and diffuse
the light if possible.

Are you using a tripod?

Is your digcam set to max sharpness?

User a slicer to slice very thin slices then lay on clear
glass...light from below and snap a few...



You have inspired me to try something similar, aladyforty
and I thank you for your image which inspires!
