Paul, your pear images are delightful! Would you share how you get this effect? I know it's Rembrandt styling and lighting, but are you using a filter or software to achieve this?

Thanks Jill, coming from you that is a real compliment! I envy your background, it must of been fun having a family that shared a passion. I was looking at your website and it's just crazy. I couldn't figure the "password" it isn't the word I thought?

I'm not surprised this won something - the whole pear series is delightful. So standard "Rembrandt" lighting on these? Window? Do explain - love to know!

Thanks Christopher. I used a single strobe in a softbox. Had a light on a piece of brown wrapping paper (the background) and set it up in the kitchen.

Congratulations on this winner, better late than never I always say. This is a fantastic image. I was trying to photograph pears just the other day - nothing like yours though. I will post when I get one that I think is good enough.

P.S. What an absolutely fabulous gallery you have.
