Early Apples in a Crate

It seems early for apples, but the first organic fruits are taking their places in the area farmers’ markets. These are on the smaller side, but so juicy and sweet. I liked the simple fruit framed in the crate and tried it in black and white.

But I like the photo is a soft color, too. Sometimes it’s fun to just play with a photograph and see all the different techniques that speak in different ways.

  1. I like the black and white the best

  2. The color is very pretty, yet I do like the black & white the best. 🙂

  3. I like the B&W. The texture of crate and the lines of the colors on the apples seem more pronounced and stronger to me.

    I like the black and white picture. The combination of textures in the pictures is really neat.

    I love the color—luscious and fruity–the color tells the whole story
