When fruit is forgotten, it can turn rotten
Just a lone pomegranate hanging around which we just never got around to picking and which with age has turned interesting.

Re: Bad seed
I think I like the DOF on this shot - I say think because I'm looking at it on my iPod
I just posted on another photo a similar comment to the one I'm about to make, so perhaps I am just off on this.
To me the way the branch goes right across the right edge of the fruit is distracting?
There is a LOT of contrast in the pomegranate itself. Part of me wants the exposure to be a little less so there is more detail on the brightest spot, but the bottom part would be pretty dark that way and I'm not sure I would like that either. So, probably a good exposure considering. Perhaps someone else can weigh in with some advice to handle a high contrast situation like this. That said, the really bright spot has an appeal too.
Good job taking notice of this interesting sight and thanks for sharing it
