Glossy Apples

First Place

Photographer's Statement:

This is an apple I found on the ground. One side was beaten up and mushy, but this side was perfect and round. The berries I put in because they look like little apples and the color matches very well. This was taken on a rainy day so it made the amazing water droplets on the apple.
