Great idea to back light those hairs, makes for a wonderful contrast with the juicy green on the interior.

I have tried and tried to do this but I just can't get a decent shot. Tell me your secrets!!

Sorry for delay in awarding this. Very bright, sharp and well exposed close up. Good use of backlighting and tight crop all help it achieve its award winning status.

I'm a little behind in the gallery, but I've clicked through to your portfolio after some advice you have given me on one of my images, and wow! I'm from New Zealand (where we call these kiwifruit)and this image is great. Have you considered sending it to a kiwifuit company to sell?

Thankyou Heidi, yes we call them kiwifruit here in the UK too, I was just trying to be different :o) and yes I have thought about selling it but never done anything about it YET! :o)
