The forbidden fruit! The little penguin men are looking for the key...
If you wish, you can view some details at this link. I took this pic
in Brussels with the Samsung Smart Camera NX20, provided to
me by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.

Note: "Forbidden fruit" is a metaphorical phrase originating from
the Genesis narrative concerning Adam and Eve. In the narrative,
the fruit came from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and
was eaten by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

As a metaphor, the phrase typically refers to any indulgence or
pleasure that is considered illegal or immoral. It may also refer
to something being potentially dangerous or harmful, particularly
relating to human sexuality.

In Western Europe, the fruit was often depicted as an apple. The
larynx in the human throat, noticeably more prominent in males,
was consequently called an Adam's apple, from a notion that it
was caused by the forbidden fruit sticking from Adam's throat as
he swallowed it (textual source: Wikipedia).

I have always appreciated your pencil and photography work, it shows an inspiration that I haven't seen in DA before.
This particular image shows some great skill with the use of layered chains, shading for the apple and details for perspective of the little penguin men, but I feel that by now adding the trees in at the top that you have let your own quality slip a little.

I can't help but think that the idealism in the worm/apple/penguin men might work a little better if say the penguin men had the key and were sitting above it, with the worm looking to enter the apple instead - or maybe I'm missing the point?
