[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Star fruit botanical name is “Averrhoa Carambola”.

Star Fruit is a tropical fruit that is eaten for its delicious taste and medicinal properties. It is bright yellow in color with light greenish tinges in parts.

When cut from the middle, a slice of star fruit looks like a star. When seen from either front or back, it is seen to have five points similar to a pentacle. This gives the fruit its unique name.

Hi Tsilla,
It looks like star fish. Nice powerful yellow with great contrast. The soft texture and smoothness of the fruit is shown very well. I have never tasted this before.

Hallo Tsilla...
Frumoasa si apetisanta floarea ta...stea :)

Good notes and interesting image, I like the surrounds etc but not know the surface it sits on....tin perhaps?

Hi Tsilla,
A very curious fruit. This is the first time I'm seeing such a fruit.
A very sharp image adorned with excellent light.
Very interesting post.

SO cute photo, I like this !
In thumbnail I thought I saw a lovely starfish.
Lines and the circles of glass plate bring a very interesting dynamism.
Very good use of space, smart idea.

Hi Tsilla, a simple slice of fruit but taken very effectively! A good choice of plate for your bg.
Well done.
