Apples second part...
I changed everything trying to make it a bit easier this time... with a dark background and fewer apples... Sorry about the background it is just a bed cover... If my tries succeeded I might buy something better for a backdrop...

Just a bed side table lamp and long exposure...

I liked your first effort, reminded me of one of Australia's great artists Margaret Olley. She is famous for painting fruit and flowers, I know she paints but her compositions might give you some ideas for your photographs. Go to
http://www.savill.com.au/olleym.html and see what you think. You can Google Margaret Olley to find more of her fruit paintings.

BTW thanks for adding details of lense etc.

I like #1 very much - the black background, and lighting angle give it a Dutch Masters feel - the way that they used partial illumination of the scene and darkness as a backdrop.

Example: http://images.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=ht...D%26sa%3DN

The incandescent light makes the scene feel very warm and inviting, even if it makes the white balance seem slightly yellow. I think it works for these shots.

I like #1 better than #2 because it has a more 3D arrangement and slightly deeper DOF. It also has a much more dramatic lighting ratio - deeper shadows on one side...

#3 is different but equally delightful - so much to look at, excellent processing, and an excellent POV.

Really nice work Irma - nice to see you experimenting with this further.

Thanks Toad for your comment... and the link to see the painting... I am very happy you like the picture... I was reading about flat light and all... still I think I need to practice more... I will buy some new clothes to use as backdrops...

In all these pictures I worked with an action called Draganizer... Have you heard about it?... It is amazing!!! I like a lot what you can do with this..

Here are some pictures and from here you download it...

I love number 3 Irma - it just needs to be a little warmer I think. It feels too much like winter with the cool white balance.

Hi Irma,

Sorry about not replying - I have been quite unwell. Better now though.

Yes - I do like it better now.
