beautiful work.
I really like the tones, especially the glowing yellow on top of the apple. It seems that the light is coming from inside like in halloween pumpkins.
I'd suggest to leave more space below the reflection, since the symmetry is broken and the impact is not as strong as it could be.
I'd also use a portrait crop to enhance the vertical symmetry of the picture.
hope it helps

Excellent shot Carl! Tones are brilliant against the black background. I agree with frz67 above about the crop, but I like the existing dimensions - gives the subject impact sitting in its blackness. Love it...

wow - very sureal look to it and what a great idea!

If you can get the reflection a bit brighter, I think that'll add more impact, and also give it a bit more space around the apple - it's a bit squashed in vertically.

maybe have a look at sharpening it to bring out the detail in the spple skin too. It's a bit soft as it is, sure you can sort this in software

but 10/10 for inventiveness

Thanks for the feedback, i can see the crop issue now. Off to local fruit n veg shop to grope their apples to find a decent 'un and go again, its got me wondering what else would be worth boring out and stuffing with a flash!! haha... Ade that was my initial thought too about sharpness again thanks for the feedback very much appreciated.
