Fizz Series

By phil_j  
A change of direction for me tonight from my usual uploads, trying to develop an all round photography approach.

With a big nod in the general direction of Nick (Godders) for the inspiration and idea for these shots, here are my first attempts at an indoor shoot using Fruit, lemonade and a macro lens.

I would welcome any thoughts, advice or comments on the success, or otherwise, of these two shots.

The first is a Lime, the second an orange.

Thank you for looking.

V1 has worked extremely well, with light through the lime and bubbles everywhere. V2 doesn't have the clarity on the fruit and I also feel the fruit takes up too much space. What I DO like about V2 is the orange along the top line.

I prefer V2, but only because it's brighter and bolder. They both have their merits.
V1 is astonishing. Could be in an advert. Top quality. JNC

V1 for me, I think it has more bite, no pun intended

Super detail in this Phil - V1 for me.
Congrats on the HC.

I think the lime looks better because of the space the image has on the left. Also, I think that it is better because the water has more detail on it due to having more backlighting brightening the fruit.
