This competition was sparked by a discussion in the ‘A Photographers Craft’ forum. The idea being to photograph an apple or something similar, and use digital imagery to alter the original image.

Two of the top three have been mentioned here before in the Promotion, so i will not re-introduce them. Karri is a mother with a talent for turning the everyday image into a piece of art. All three have a wealth of talent and are very deserving of their efforts in the competition. Adriana Glackins effort has some lovely texture and simple colours that bring the apple to life. Dana DiPasquales image once again emphasises the colour of the apple, with a lovely perspective and texture. Karri Klawiters use of light is exquisite.

Top of the list this week goes to Maria Medeiros with her entry Harmonious shells. A wonderfully simple and elegant image.

Nails and Nuts Figure by VashR31 is very well portrayed. The point of view and scale bring the little sculpture to life.

I just love Miron Abramovici image Want a bagel!. Not only a great find, but superbly created, and perfectly shot.

All profits from the purchase of these or any images in The Gift Of Art go to the selected monthly charity.

I am happy to say that i have come first in the latest Promote each other competition.

My entry Sister Two was taken of my sister-in-law after our visit to Auschwitz. We went to a bar in the old Jewish quarter of Krakow, to have a drink and reflect. I think this image best displays our feelings at the time. A feeling none of us had ever experienced before. To have been, too see, to smell such a place of despair and death.

Sue Wickhams entry On Her Way was the last photo she took of her daughter before she left in the car, on her way to the church with her father, to be married.

Dana DiPasquale’s entry Waiting to Say Goodbye was taken when waiting to attend funeral services for a beloved uncle that has passed away. She saw these antique children’s chairs that her aunt had and decided to spend some time taking photos of them to get her mind off of things.
