Canon 5d Mark II | f/5 | 1/100 | iso 100 | Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS USM @ 80mm
We were at Pike Place Market the other day when everything was shutting down and happened across this lonely sight, an apple and orange left behind! Not sure why they were left, perhaps as a freebie? Perhaps the vendor was in rush to get home? Who knows but thank you Mr. Vendor for leaving the apple & orange!
Converted the image to B&W, then lowered the opacity of the layer to get the muted colours. Masked the layer to bring some colour back into the apple. lastly, added a textured layer.

Love the way the apple stands out due to color of the overall shot. Although the orange looks like he’s about to jump that apple.
Good find! Maybe we’ll shoot this place together someday…
Thank you Michael and definitely contact me next time you are in Seattle!
Well, since you are posting this, I’m guessing it wasn’t of the poisoned kind that witches in disguise leave about. Love the contrast in this one, David.
Hahaha, wow that totally made me laugh!
Nice DOF, David.
Thank you very much Eden. 😀
Awesome, David! I love the muted colors on the photo, I find it emphasizes the message you were trying to convey: Left behind.
Thank you Gracie, glad you like the image!
Gotta love the contrast in comparing apples to oranges! I like that you left the sticker on the apple, it implies a sense of industry as does the feel of the shot – for me at least.
Thank you Melanie, I see what you mean about the feel. To me, the cold metal table also adds to the sense. 😀
That’s a really cool picture. I was so busy looking at the apple and the background that I didn’t notice the textured layer until you mentioned it in your comment. Thanks for putting all your details out there – (at least for me who is only just starting to learn) it really helps to see how things are being shot and edited.
Thank you for not only visiting Kris but for the comment. 😀 I will always post the camera setting s(iso, shutter, aperture, etc) and when I have time (hahaha), will post a little blurb about post processing. 🙂 Glad you liked the image and hope to see you back sometime. 😀
A very fitting title.
Thank you very Kevin.
