Dying for an apple - Day 187 of Project 365



I was really clutching at straws today, for the first time in...6 months (struth!) I didn't take my camera with me. I think I know how a woman feels without a handbag now! Anyway, I was browsing the 365 community forum and I came across eeicenbice's apple photo. I innocently commented the first thing that came to mind and continued browsing. Next I tripped over Patchworkbunny and her Heptagon/Septagon shot, where she just happened to mention The Rouge Players theme of the day Hypothetcal corpses.... et viola


You see apples contain cyanide...its true. I'm one of those people who eat the whole apple (stalk and all if I don’t have a dustbin) so death by apple is hypothetically bound to happen to me one day.. Ok the amount of cyanide is so small it wouldn’t even harm a mouse... but it's still cyanide, and it happend to Snow White :P


Cheers to EB and PB for subconsciously contributing to this shot, their photostreams can be a gerat source of inspiration :D


Lightroom: White balance by eye, crop to centralise the apple, increase exposure by 1 stop (oops!) use the brush tool to slightly desaturate my fingers, very slight vignette (although most of it comes from the lens), USM sharpen, save to JPG
