According to the ancient Hebrew calendar, this week marks the start of another year, with the traditional offering of Apples and Honey.
If you want to know why apples and honey: please click here.
To all my Jewish friends and everyone else who pops into my gallery:
I wish you all the very best!

May your New Year be sweetened with happiness and blessed with peace, prosperity and health

P.S. For the next two weeks, I am going to be frantically busy thanks to 1) work, 2) my upcoming exam 3) the Jewish New Year [which affects one half of my family] and 4) Canadian (Christian) Thanksgiving [which affects the other half of my family], so please forgive me if I cannot write as many critiques as I used to. I promise to do my best :)

This is beautiful work here Silke! Superb clarity and details. I had no idea that people celebrated DIFFERENT New Years, although the Chinese do. Duh! my small world! I love the red/white combination!

Very nice presentation Silke,is that the famous Canadian maple syrup?

Hi Silke,

What a lovely greeting for the New Year. I find the entire scene very "homey" and welcoming. The details of the honey dipper are interesting as are the red apples.

Hi Silke

A superb still life, with good colour, sharpness, & lighting. The symmetry between the 3 red apples is excellent. The third element of the honeypot completes the compo. A nice tribute to Jewish New Year, & thanks.

Silke nice presentation for this tribute.
Your frame, the lighting on the subjects.
The colors on the {mac's?} apple's so accurate.


Hello Silke

A lovely shot here, nice and sharp with excellent lighting and good colours too. A nicely balanced image and neat framing compliments the shot perfectly. Very interesting and informative notes too. I love how we can learn so much more than photography on this site. Superb post.

TFS kind regards Helen
