Not too complicated here, just a photo of a fork in a piece of fresh watermelon. Something about the rich color and texture made it seem interesting.
I like the distortion of the size in proportion of the fork to the fruit caused by the close up lens. Also I was surprised how this looks like a studio shot when all I used was a white plate and some simple side lighting.

Nikon Coolpix 5400, AV 2.8f, macro mode

Hi Ahamed, thanks for yr lovely comment on my dog at http://anythingpet.blogspot.com/ . Its dinner time and watermelon is my favourite fruit. Seeing this picture really make me salivates. Pictures really makes wonder. I love the jellyfish too.. One suggestion as it just cross my mind when I see the jellyfish. How about Seahorse the next time? I have caught one pretty one back in childhood times...lovely one. : )

Thanks for the comments.

Food photography seems fun since you can do it when the lighting is bad outdoors and because it makes you take a closer look at everyday life.

This photo is great.
Timing is important also.
Maybe a chunk of turkey would have been better....since it is near Thanksgiving.

I'm just kidding Ahamed, you are a talented photographer.

May I use this photo on my blogs, next 4th of July?

Whether intentional or accidental, the photo is red, white and blue, and makes me hungry.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments,

web loafer-You had me going there for a second with the turkey comment. I'm afraid turkey isn't too photogenic.

But please feel free to use the photo (maybe just mention that you got it from here). I'm flattered that you like it.

A little soft, but interesting. I think catching a reflection in the fork would make this photo shine.

Thanks for the comment, I'll have to get a shinier fork next time (this one was somewhat old).

Seeing your watermelon makes me hungry. :) I like the composition in this. Simple, yet to the point (no pun intended)

Thanks Wilson,
With macro, sometimes simple is the only way to go.
