The original shot is taken in July 2015.

I did not feel happy lately the way the light was done so I tweaked it today a little in Affinity photo, I added some dodge and burn layers.

If ever possible, I would like a look at the original file

to see what you were tackling! What converter did 

you use?

 

There are some issues with this rendition but I would

consider only one: the lack of details in the high keys!

@kodiak,

You mean the high keys of the lemon?
Personally I don't feel problems with those high keys.

 

@animalhass

If I would take the picture again I would do it very differently.
With more knowledge and more and better equipment, the result would change significantly.

 

LOL

You convince me both to make the picture again.

I think what MBd is suggesting is a good idea, to have the lemon in mid flight would increase the wow. It could be done in a static take with the lemon supported in a way that does not need a high speed exposure. then added on its own layer. Perhaps BB que sticks could be used to impale the lemon with the opposite end of the stick secured to a base, perhaps Styrofoam.

 

Good luck, nice work.

You may consider that having values lower than 235/255 

at recording is good practice.
