      Thank you all so much for the lovely congrats, comments and votes :-) . Two 'Open' wins in a row! That's' a first for me :-) .

Thank you for the very kind comment james_lst. I'm so pleased you like my photos :-) . Thanks for taking the time to give them a look.

This win will inspire me to create something good for the next challenge....just what is the question??

      Thank you all so much for the congrats :-) . I'm really happy to have done so well.

ysal - Sorry, I didn't take any photos of the setup as it wasn't very exciting. The kiwi was placed on a black piece of Perspex and lit directly from behind with a torch resting on the Perspex. I used a much less powerful torch to slightly light the front/side and I think the kitchen strip light may have been on or not. It's hard to remember as I tried sooo many permutations of lighting ;-) . There was black material behind the kiwi and torch to provide the background.

There is a less edited shot of a hairier kiwi from the first punnet on the outtakes thread.

      I'm really pleased you all like it. It didn't turn out quite as good as I'd imagined but you get the idea of what I was after.

      Thank you both so much :-) .

The colours were so vibrant. I think they maxed out the red and yellow colour channels!

      Thank you all for the lovely comments :-) .

ysal - no, it's just a single photo. I have to thank my tiny sensor for the bountiful depth of field :-) .

      Thanks you all very much for the great comments :-) .

RobertLavker and davemisunas - I wish that were true. Of the two punnets I bought only 2 kiwis were edible as the others were way too over ripe :-(. I think it was due to the mini heatwave we had over here.

ysal - I hope you came down on the side of 'adding' ;-) . I tried the whole reflection and no reflection but thought this partial reflection was the best balance.

Elliott - Yes, it's mainly backlit but with a little light from in front to the side and above to help with the catch lights on the pips.

      Thank you all soooo much for all you warm congrats and more importantly your votes ;-) . Winning the Main with the added bonus of the Open too really made my day (probably my week and month too :-) . Thank you all again, Neil.

I have added details of how I took the photo in the outtakes thread for cookiejar if anyone would like a look.

      I like the leaves but the background is a distractingly odd colour.

jomari - it was cheap carbonated water which had a lot of fizzzzzz ;-) .

      Thanks so much to all of you for the wonderful comments :-) .

Elliott - I have to thank the dof from my tiny sensor for that. I was quite lucky to get a reasonably sharp shot in the gentle lighting I used without a higher and damaging ISO.

      Now this is different. Slight orange/yellow cast over the photo.

      An interesting photo for this challenge but I can't deny that green is a colour worthy of entering ;-) . Good sharpness and detail.

      Great idea and well done but I think the white table cloth and wall could have caused slight underexposure. I would be tempted to lighten the shadows and up the saturation slightly.

      You've either gone through some steep inflation at some time or are very rich ;-) . I like the 'holographic' effects and earthy tones.

      Nice subject but all the colours seem oversaturated and wrong.

      Thanks for the comments both. I was quite pleased with the way it turned out.

Old Finn - It did take a bit of 'composing'. I tried dropping it several times into heaps but couldn't see anything appealing so wound the entire length into a coil and unwound it in a more 'orderly random' fashion if you see what I mean. It still took quite a bit of tweaking of different parts to cover up holes/gaps and to make it more photogenic.

      Thank you both very much for the kind comments :-)

Old Finn - The ends of the pencils were placed in budget sparkling water (17p for 2L) and left for the bubbles to accumulate. This was one of the last photos I took by which time the water was a lot less fizzy.

      I love the effect and colours but would have placed it higher if the saturation and contrast didn't fade so much towards the top right.

      I admire the effort you put in to get this result and like the patterns and range of colours. I think you may have photographed it in too bright a light though. I think if you tried again in subdued light (not direct in any way) and then used Levels and sharpening etc to bring out the contrast and details without getting so many blown areas and dark shadows.

      Dramatic moonrise. I'm guessing you've boosted the colours somewhat to achieve this result? I'm not sure about the banding and grain in the top half of the photo. I think it looks good with the top half removed. Less forced somehow. Yes you loose the moon but you wont miss it as you would never know it was there. I had a play and the shadows lighten up nicely on the lighthouse, giving some detail and interest to the focal point.
