Alane and Richard both requested an insect on a flower or leaf. OK then. Wormy Apple was from our backyard tree. About four images processed in Helicon focus, modified in PS with some color dodging and burning, sharpening.

Hi Neal,
Great subject. You managed to capture sharp details and lots of texture in the apple. Well exposed and nice colors. I see the little worm too. You presented this wormy apple in its finest light.   Posted: 07/11/2021 13:01:24

Hi Neil: This apple would not be a good choice to use in an apple pie. This image is a good nature story telling picture, very descriptive. The core of the apple is on a diagonal as well as the worm, so composition is well presented as well as good technical qualities. The border color is very well matched to the colors in the apple.   Posted: 07/16/2021 01:10:34

You fulfilled the requests asked for! I like the composition being on an angle. Sharp with good color and detail. Nice stroke around the image, slim width and color-wise.   Posted: 07/25/2021 18:43:45

NEAL,

THANKS FOR THE IMAGE.
I LIKE WHAT YOU DID WITH IT, NICE DIAGIOAL USING THE CORE,
AND PUTTING THE MAIN PART OF THE IMAGE IN THE UPPER LEFT MAKE A GOOD COMPOSTIONAL STATEMENT, THE COLOR ARE VERY SOFT ANDD PLEASING TO LOOK AT, OF COURSE ITS NEEDLESS TO SAY THE SHARPNESS IS DEAD ON, I EXPECT NO LESS FROM YOU!
THE STROKE YOU USED IS A LITTLE BIG TO ME, AND THE WAY IT BLENDS WITH THE UPPER LEFT CORNER MAKES THAT PART OF THE IMAGE LOOK KIND OF SOFT.
BUT THANKS FOR THE WORM.   Posted: 07/28/2021 16:38:56
