Bite me...

By denka  
I'm sorry about the cherry I couldn't help myself...

Taken in June in my bedroom using my "home-made studio". Used natural sunlight coming from the bedroom window and 1 Lastolite SoftSilver reflector to even the light on the cherry and a water-spray bottle to get the waterdrops.

This has great impact, both for the photographic / presentation skills and the humourous element - terrific!

Hi Denka,I'm not surprised you started eating it,it looks delicious.Love the water droplets and the pool at the bottom of the cherry where the shadow is but the icing on the cake has to be the droplet hanging from the stalk,beautiful minimalist shot and perfect lighting,exposure and composition.Take care.AnnSmile

Strikingly simple yet so very beautiful, I like the water drop at the end of the stalk, good work again Denka!

This is very good. Perhaps there's too much space on the left hand side but it's flawless otherwise

The politically correct way to state that title is "Byte Me"! Wink Spot on! Click!!!

Another very nice looking cherry and image. Nice idea and works well with the added water. Im gathering you must have eaten it afterwards, because if not that would be a terrible waste. Great shot.
