A detail of a Pomegranate Crown. The crown is where the blossoms sprout out. As the fruit ages on the tree, the crown gets larger and larger and the fruit gets smaller and smaller as the flowers feed in it.

In almost every religion the pomegranate has been used as a symbol of humanity's most fundamental beliefs and desires, life and death, birth and eternal life, fertility and marriage, abundance and prosperity. Most aspect of the pomegranate come to symbolize something for its shape, color, seeds and juice. To the Jews, the pomegranate represents righteousness, to the Christians, it means life and hope of eternal life and to the Chinese, wealth and many sons.

PP work: cropped from original to obtain this composition and increased color saturation.

Hello Francis,an excellent macro of the pomegranate crown, an interesting composition.
The light catches the texture of the thick shiny skin, and the lovely warm colour.
I like the bokeh in the same colour too.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Love the colors of the crown of Pomegranate with such promising details, Francis!

Superb clarity and nice contrasts with amazing management of light and balanced exposure.
The colors are natural and the overall picture looks 3-D to me!
