I shot a series of Kiwi Fruit macro shots with the intention of using them to generate photorealistic art and textures from. It is the unique differences in every Kiwi you cut open that captured my interest. This is one shot from that series. This is a very lightly editid image, colours are not pushed more than 15% in vibrance/saturation and -5% in tonal change within the greens, white balance shot at 2850 and was altered post process to 2450, darks [seeds] were tone mapped in Lightroom to bring out their details. Because I wasn't using stacked focus I was limited to the f22 Dof and some diffraction softness. Thus finding a focal plane to get sufficient detail and sharpness on what is essentially a jellified fruit was hard work [lots of wasted shots]. Some parts look sharp, some soft, some are soft because they are coated in the friut and its juice.
