Cut Grapefruit Still Life

Three shots, bracketed to make the most of highlights, midtones and shadows, and combined. 
Ahhh, there's nothing like a spicy, tart and somehow still sweet red grapefruit on a winter afternoon, is there?  (Or any other time, really!)  I was about to have a snack of this, and realized that it might make a nice addition to my StockFood portfolio, so I quickly set up my camera with my favorite foodtography lens, the Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4, put it on the tripod, and took a couple of High Dynamic Range compositions of it--you can read about what the technique is by clicking on the link embedded within the words if you care to know more about it!  I like the effect, which brought out so much detail and a feeling that you could reach into the picture, grab the spoon and dig in, as I did with the real grapefruit about five minutes after the images were taken!  YUM!
