Hello...my Name is Melinda and I have a Twilight reading problem...


This book, while I resisted it at first, sucked me in. I don't think I'm quite as addicted to it as I am to the Anne of Green Gables series, but it's a close second. I really enjoy being pulled into another world, especially one so alluring as this.
I only cropped and added a little of saturation. I played with b/w, but I really wanted to keep the red apple and I don't happen to have a camera or program with that ability.

Yeah, I could talk Twilight all day long. LOL... I really resisted reading these too, but once I started... HOLY CRAP!! I could not stop! I've NEVER read a book more than once, it's just not my thing. But I've read the whole series twice and Twilight three times! Love it!

Okay, now, about your picture... I love how your whole frame is filled with the book display. And while it would have been cool to have it black and white with just a bunch of read apples, I think the way you left it is much better. If you had just taken a picture of one book, I think the selective color would have really stood out then, but it would be a lot of work to do that with a whole display of books.

Anyway, great job!!!

I love the Twilight Series too.. in fact when I was at Target last night they had all the books on display and I thought seriously about taking a picture of it, but then I know how many people love the series so I just knew there was going to be a Twilight picture. You made the right decision to have it in color, the apples all lined up looks great.

This was a great setup! And a good idea!! I am impressed. Still haven't read the books, so obviously not my addiction. But I know it is for many people. I love the simple colors, but the POP of the red! Looks great!

I think the apple color popping is great too, and I like it in color. Good idea... I know a lot of women are addicted to those books!

Same thing happened to me too. I thought it was ridiculous how many people went ga ga over this book, but now sad to say I'm one of them! It was a great idea to go get the shot with a bunch of them. Great depth!

I also share your addiction to the twilight books, however I didn't like the movie that much. I just thought the girl who plays Bella is a horrible actress, she only has one emotion.
Enough about that though.

Great picture :)

Ahhh Twilight! I love the angle you shot at. I like how it makes all of the arms on the bottom row appear to be a link or chain, it really drew me in. Nice job!

I like the picture but what is it with these stories. No man is like what they say Edward is like anyway.
Though I have two pointy teeth my wife says are like vampires lol
