    I love flying in light planes with a photo group.
My concern now is for the coming "High Angle" theme. Does this mean we have to be one foot below the sky and if so where is that?

    Oh don't say entertaining....you're just asking for it!
"I am very aware that the 'ground' can suddenly appear to be at an altitude that one did not expect..." is so true and the classic Gary Larson cartoon is a humourous look at a very real problem known as CFIT (controlled flight into terrain - which killed Kobe Bryant by the way). (Larson's line, co-pilot to pilot looking forward out the front aircraft windscreen: Say...what's a mountain goat doing way up here in a cloud bank?...) I can say I have flown with my nose pointing in every conceivable direction including straight down and in all of that the only ones which are burned into your psyche are the ones in close proximity to the ground (nothing slows down time like seeing your windscreen unexpectedly filling with the sight of green turf at an altitude under 200 feet...) I attribute that incident and some other inverted moments in general for my propensity to compose still life in the spilled fruit variety....art imitates life they say...

    Knew this one would do well, excellent lighting and the reflection really adds to it. Great choice for low angle. You're right, the fruit looks very inviting.

    All very entertaining from two of my favourite commenters.
I just wish I could get to that pear - my isolation order doesn't arrive until tomorrow! Happy bantering.

    It's been a while, but Jomari's stunning entry pulled me back in to comment, and once you comment on one....

    Jade: Yes, I do.
Just to make sure of my understanding of the word fruity, I looked on Thesaurus.com to check which synonyms might apply. They all seemed to apply to the Jade I know, especially "Plummy" ROFLMAO.

I voted this high because I consider the word 'ground' to have several different definitions. Also, as a pilot, I am very aware that the 'ground' can suddenly appear to be at an altitude that one did not expect. In this case I felt that the definition of ground as 'Something that serves as a foundation' applied to the surface which the bowl was standing on.

My apologies to Lois for using her entry for some (attempted) humorous banter. She is an excellent wordsmith and might not take kindly to my selective word definitions.

It's great to see you commenting again - I was disappointed that you didn't enter as shot.

    I absolutely love the lighting in this shot - well done!

    Michael, is that because you think I'm fruity?
This is much a much cleaner and tighter composition than my still life shots which usually look more like a bowl of spilled fruit... : )

    Lois: I thought this was from Jade, please consider that a compliment! My #1 pick.

    What a beautiful still life - worthy of hanging on a wall or gracing a magazine. The lighting is lovely and the arrangement of the fruit very artful.. The reflection adds extra value.

    Really well composed with beautiful detail. The low angle creates an interesting point of view.

    Beautiful still life. But unless this was placed on the floor, not sure if it meets the theme rule of "no more than a foot off the ground."

    A truly professional shot. The low angle works well to helps differentiate it from many other still life shots. Also my mouth is watering :-)

    Nicely lit and composed. Excellent control is called for in still life since you can control everything and you display that here. Top 5

    Good still life, though maybe tilted a bit to the left. In positioning the fruit, consider putting the apple in front to make the arrangement less dominated by yellow.

    Nice still life. First in my favorites.
