Rachel Rocket September 20, 2005

Terry,

I think it looks great. The lighting and selective focus both bring one's attention right where it should be. The softness of the rest brings further attention to the main apple. If I was Snow White, I know which apple would be my pick. It's a lovely, soft and appealing photo.

Best,
Rachel #1858172

Description

1/50, f/5.6, ISO 400, hand-held. A little PS work, but the brightness on the left side of the main apple is from the shine off of the apple behind it. Does it look funny?
