[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The star apple, or milk fruit, or vú sữa (meaning "milk from the breast" in Vietnamese) has shiny, pale-greenish skin like an apple but rounder in shape. The center of the fruit resembls a star when cut into halves horizontally.

Hello Tsilla,an excellent macro of this unusual fruit.The star pattern is attractive as are the delicate colours of the cut fruit.
A good composition with the whole fruit surrounding the cut one.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Tsilla.

I do like this, the close presentation appeals as you show attractive pastel tones with very good depth. A bold tight crop but one i do like. Very welldone.
Have a good weekend.

Stv :))

Bom dia Tsilla,
It's tempting and seems to have good flavor.
Excellent close up a very well composed.

Bonjour Tsilla,
Ce fruit a une texture superbe, juteuse si j'en crois ce que je vois...
Superbes couleurs très softs pour l'oeil d'un photographe, avec de jolis détails dans sa coupe, c'est vrai, tu as raison, son coeur ressemble à s'y méprendre à une étoile,bien vu, joliment pris...
Best regards and have nice week end...

Hi Tsilla,
What a sharp capture of this close-up of this particular fruit. It really seems like a painting with such pastel colors. A fine crop and a neat presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

A crisp shot from a milk fruit with amazing focus and clarity, Tsilla!

Great sharpness and well chosen POV where you managed the light and exposure nicely.
The colors are natural and no OE can be seen on the surface of the fruit "ready to serve".

Have a nice weekend.


Wow! I haven't seen this fruit in a long time! Love them while growing up in the Philippines, sweet and juicy. Nicely captured with good details. Good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

This is beautifully taken. The colours and subject are delicate. Has it been cropped?
The composition in the frame is interesting and I like the fruit in the background which compliments the detail beautifully.The shiny skin contrasts well with the flesh of this very attractive fruit.
