    lemons are funny shapes indeed... images are flat, bad exposed, no context. try harder. search for an lower angle and a recompose the image. try to diffuse that hard light in order to obtain a smoother light.

    I agree with Rick. #2's got the best light.


    “Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that,
    behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable.
    Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion.”

    Holy cow, those are lemons?! What amazing shapes- the little one looks like a baby squid. the biggest one like something with a beak and reaching arms. Where did you get these?

    I think the notes about light are good^^^. A sheet of tracing paper between light and subject can work good.

    Cheers Grandpa, I got the light off a window and reflected on them with a white cardboard.
