Orange. Probably more than one my wife already ate one of my subjects. I had a similar issue last time when I did an egg, with breakage.   


Orange? Isn't this fruit called Minneola (mix between tangerine & grapefruit)?

Not that anyone really cares, it's a Dekopon, but this one comes from California not Japan. And yes, they are a hybrid citrus fruit which is a cross-breed of Navel, Pomelo and Mandarin oranges. I was thinking "colour" not so much fruit and it is orange.

wow - I've never heard of Minneola or Dekopon - but then I don't like/eat/drink orange anyway.
They just looked 'big' to me.
You get to to a different sort of 'reveal' to the cryptic players here!

lighting/reflection/framing/composition on this is fabulous
I initially thought there was something 'inside' the glass but then see the pointy thing is in front of.

I like how this stands-out in terms of limited depth.
And as a fan of muted tones I prefer overcast over a 'sunny day' shot for this (if the sun shines this week?).
But the item - whatever this strange thing is - appears to be 'just' out of focus to me.
Is that intentional? Or did you upload the wrong shot or maybe this is a JPG down-sampling thing?

I think the focus point was on a part behind the statue, that was not intentional. Maybe my 70-400G needs some MFA.

Comments on Day 1
pegelli - Like the high key set-up and lighting.
LAbernethy - Also like the lighting here - it highlights the shape of the subjects and shows the texture of their skins well
addy landzaat - Overcast light and muted tones create a sombre mood (Good colour coordination of the cars in the background too).
onsplekkie - Intriguing start. I have no idea what it is, but looking forward to seeing it emerge.
Howard_S - Wide panorama format works well holding the thin horizontal edge in the frame.
alanfrombangor - I like the repetition and b/w conversion.
Fred_S - Humble subject but the composition, lighting and focus draw me in. Sort of reminds me of a catalogue shot.
mikey2000 - Another clever crop, along with exquisite detail - or are you the subject and this is a blurry selfie to start?
Phil Wood - Selective focus and framing are strong here.
alpha_in_exile - Beautifully rich capture of the colour and texture of the subject.

Looks small and electronic, am now thinking it is a DAC!
(but it has a screen and I'm not sure if DACs just have dials up front)
mmmm - looking forward to frame 4

Thanks Greg. A humble subject indeed, but flexible to take with me and use in- or outdoors
