    thanks for all your differing opinions.

I chose the two apples for contrast - having two green apples made for a really dull photo, I felt this has more of a narrative - even possibly a memento mori, if I can be that pretentious.

getting the colour and sharpness right was really difficult... the diffuse glow of the filter impacts on both. I tried to bring some colour back, but clearly not enough for some tastes.

    I like to see more sharpness and saturation in the green apple to provide a better contrast to the shriveled one on the left. Although I don't find dead fruit appealing I can see you have managed the high key process well with gentle shadows and no blown areas.

    You have certainly succeeded in creating a high key photograph. I think another fresh fruit would have been more appealing.

    Interesting idea and as such is well executed but it is not a photo I would want to view a number of times.

    Good photo. I especially like the way the texture of the 2 different apple skins has been captured.

    the colour level did not work enough

    Wonderful subjects, contrast with subtle colour tone, and nice fruit with just enough shadow. Definitely high key. But higher definition/sharpness would have been my choice.
