    Cool Carcass....

    of a pomelo



    Taken with EOS 30 w. EF28-105mm
    Partial Metering (to backlight the shrivelled skin and texture)
    f4.0, 1/500s


    Comments are greatly appreciated!

    *Usually pomelo and their skin are found hung outside shophouses and even houses as a sign of luck to be attracted to give more business or to the household....

    self critique: what's that thing?! Spot metering on the wrong object of focus, foreground too overwhelming dark and doesn't show it's a pomelo skin... take more pictures!

    actually, would anyone wanna tell me how to improve this shot? I wanted it to be super abstract and started with an X-ray imagery in my head when I photograph this but ended up with a not-so-abstract piece of dried skin......

    actually, the word "carcass" is reserved for dead animals. you should have used the word "corpse" instead....
