"Thinking over an apple"! Why? Because there´s nothing else to think about! This was what i recall to do last night! It was late and i had a tingle in my hands, and some voice on my ears saying "pick me, pick me"! Then i realize it was the camera and so a picked her up and set down on the dinning room chair and looked all around me in order to see something to shoot...but nothing! Then i saw the "Thinking Guy" just there doing nothing and i decided to "shoot" him! After some experiences i saw this apple also alone, so i grabed her and did what you see! This represents my state of mind at that time, where i had no sleep to do and nothing to think about, and this is the way some we all feel some times, but we never look so "sexy" as this guy, but this is the figure we make if we see ourselves to the mirror!

Critiques very much apreciated!

Viva Bruno. Gosto da estátua, é como se estivesse a olhar para a maçã com vontade de a comer. Pena não teres brincado com a sombra da estátua. Apesar de gostar desta foto da estátua, acho que a anterior (em que invertes-te as cores) é muito melhor.

ahhhhhhh como é bom ter 21 anos e nada pra pensar e ter uma estátua filosófica pra bricar por perto...!
brimcaria mais com a sombra da estátua do que com a imagem propriamente dita. dá mais espaço para a imaginação, sabe?

Clever composition Bruno. This could be Adam deeply contemplating the consequences of eating the apple in the Garden Of Eden:-)Nice play of light and shadow.

I like this shot its puzzling and the only thing that would make this perfect if the whole background was white I think it be a little bit better so you can see the shadow better IMO. well done though.

I like what you've done, but I can't really describe what you've done. It is a really unique, thought provoking shot. I can only say you should do more- well done. (Different, very different).

You already know i like the staute Bruno, and i like what you have done here as well. It is a nice compo. The staue and the shadow creates an intresting diagonal which is enhanced by the diagonal shadow on the wall. The aple has a good symbolic value. Makes me think of Adam and Eve. Like he is asking, "Why, why did she eat it, it's just an aple" Very nice.

Is that you i see n teh reflection Bruno? :)

Great composition, Bruno. The statue is interesting on its own, but the shadow just makes it perfect. The apple is a clever idea. Well framed.

A very good creative shot,the shadows add interest also.Well done!

i like the idea Bruno, good contrast. a little noisy though and i think you could have played with the shadow on the wall as well.

Very nicely done, Bruno. Again it's that interesting statue (and I'm sure it's not the last time we saw it here on TL). Very creative to include the apple in this shot, and I like the shadow that is cast on the wall by this unlikely assemblage. Looks like the photographer is reflected in the head ;-) Great shot.

Veeery bright idea occured to you in that late night Bruno! :-)) Perfect composition of light, shadows and details, as well as a colourful spot in the middle /the apple/. Excellent capture!

Muito boa ideia!Está realmente muito original.

Your composition is very creative. The colorful contrast of the apple against the darker metal is great, as is the use of shadow. Only suggestion is to level the table line if there is room to rotate. Well done.

oh nice shot! i find it funny, its thinking how he can eat the apple! :)
