    Really surreal! The teeth - their innervation...
Watching it makes me toothache. Great shot!

    This is so funny! It's also technically very well done. In my TT.

    Hi out of focus. You guessed right. And in answer to Jade's observation it is a real skull. It was a great learning tool in school and still is. I thought the live hand and apple was a good juxtaposition to the dead skull.

    it is great shot.. very good one.. but the skull sounds friendly.. i guess it should be dirty, rusted and nasty... are you Doctor Dave ?

    Beautiful composition and outstanding lighting.
No trouble picking this as my #1.

    Nice idea and technically good lighting but the fleshy hand seems out of synch with the skull and the skull seems too obviously manufactured. Some PP on the skull would have helped.

    LOL I think it's too late for an apple a day to keep the doctor away from this fellow...way tooo late! :-) Clever idea and well captured. TT~!

    This is great. The exposure is very good except for the shine on the apple is a bit bright. I know how much fruit reflects though. This is a stand out image in the line up for sure.
