How about slicing the orange thin and shining the light through from the back. No doubt not an original idea, but it might be more interesting.

Hmmm... it didn't work, or what? That isn't the way you shot this pic, is it? :?:

yes but the ones showing the brighter lighting did not look too good.

Aladyforty...

I really like your first fruit photo on this thread...

It takes patience to achieve a great still life.
You have patience!!!
I can say without a doubt that I would probably not
have the patience to shoot 30 some fruit still life
photos.

In your first photo...there is a wonderful hint of
a gentle light within the fruit

Remember the worst day taking photos beats the best
day at work!!! (I am sure there are exceptions to this
but I hope you get the idea )

You are soooo close! The tomatoes in front really could have used better focus. Did you have the aperture set to as small as possible to increase depth of field? Another thing is that it's cropped a bit too low at the top, but you've got the composition absolutely perfect, and composition is the single most important part of any photo. If you can do this one over, increasing DOF and not crowding the top with too close a crop, you'll have it.

You've worked so hard on this project that I'll bet you're ready to throw rotten fruit at anyone who comes near.
