    Nice abstract. Good comp and use of space. Color palate is excellent. This is more of what I expect from you. That's a compliment, by the way.

    Way to go, Jade O. This was my #2. I've got to try this technique. Kudos for courage!

    I'm surprised it made top 10--thought it was a little gimmicky myself. The shot I really thought was best ended up 19th...Maybe too much shedding....

    Shucks - I should have guessed this was you - I could have saved my vote for someone else. LOL Seriously - super shot - It was a pleasant, colourful relief from a run of dreary weather.

    A bold interpretation! I like the interchanged slices. The distortion sends my head whirling! (It reminds me of when I was little and the big boys trapped me on a spinning merry-go-round! ... but I digress ... )

    This is an exciting presentation--perfect for this challenge. The vivid colors are spot on. Nicely done.

    Phil99 The pear shaped orange is unusual though I have a whole lot of them. I was trying for a little surreal with one foot grounded in reality.

cookiejar When you can't be good, I tried for weirdly different! I liked the background too.

babysister Stacking was harder than I expected. They kept wanting to topple over.

fc Thanks.

    What a great idea to interlace the slices of fruit, this sort of blurs the boundaries between reality and special effects. Love the choice of a pear shaped orange. Really good. :)

    Weirdly wonderful still life. Refreshingly different. Perfect focus and lighting with a good choice of background colour.

    This gave me a good laugh! You obviously put a lot of effort in stacking your fruit. I'm not too sure about the composition but it still wins me over.

    Mepo I agree that often distortion is done seemingly with the intent of just doing it for the effect. I confess! See outtakes for why I had to do Something!

eagle1 It turned out better than I expected.

BarbroS I think this is a thing you either like or you don't. Pleased it worked for you.

Amberbug Pinball Wizard comes to mind maybe...

johncomyn I think the distortion is an attempt to mask the lack of good photographic skill but I had to do Something!

    Not a big fan of distortion but once in a while something like this comes along and blows away my prejudice. Very inventive fruit preparation and i appreciate the minimum of distortion around the orange - nice touch! In my top picks.

    Great idea, creative and nicely presented. Love the colors and the swirling image. My #1!
