another go at it, not the result i was actually going for in the first place, went off in a different direction slightly, the BG was black but i changed it to green at the last minute and being brave thought i'd post this version even though i think the black might work better really!
put the other in the mods for comparison

not finished with these yet lol

thanks for looking, FB appreciated

The green works well especially against the red of the apple but having had a look at the mod with the black b/g I think I prefer that one Smile
Either way, the composition / crop are great.

ignore Nic... go green !
;o)

Edit : black looks nice, but it also looks a bit as if the background still has to be filled in, whereas green looks like it already has its background. It looks finished, and with the different shades, it also looks more subtle

Gotta agree with Koen (I do now and then) that the green background is better. To me the whole image looks more subtle on green and a bit stark on black.

That's Green 2: Black 2 by my reckoning.

Looks very good, It would possibly stand out more on black background but this is still very stunning and eye catching shot.

This is a great photograph (I wish it were mine.

However, I can't help but think that your model is looking and thinking about something else which is not particularly desireable!

Yes green is good - although the black background in the mod works well, it was not what was intended, and personally I think the green works better, in that it adds colour to the overall image, and doesn't make it look like a void that's missing something, which is what black does.
Wonderful shot

I find the black a bit too stark, but the green's not perhaps the right colour either, although the shading helps the shot. So maybe try a different colour, but keep the shading.
