January 11th - Still Life


This is an orange and a tangerine from my mother-in-law's yard. I love how it looks as though the orange is the "mom" and the tangerine is the "baby" being protected by the leaf "arms." See it?

Brilliant brightness in this one, I can taste the orangeness.
Well done!

I see the leafy arms! I love this, the orange color really contrasts well with the green.

I see it, but to me it look like the baby is off to wander and mom is saying.. come back here, sweetie. Love the deep orange of this.

Very pretty still life. I like the explanation, and love the intensity of the orange colors!

This is one of my favourites in your gallery so far. The simple addition of leaves changes how one usually pictures oranges.

You prove green & orange to be a very warm and pleasing combination. It made me realize that green & red or orange & blue are much harsher.

The vibrant orange and green are very effective together. Love the texture on both fruits, and your setup is good too. Lovely stuff for a magazine cover!

That is a lovely setup, the baby looks about to roll away...The colour and textures are well captured.
