Apples - food photography is an art form, and so sometimes the composition, colors, interesting details are more important than whether you'd eat it or not. I wouldn't eat that apple, but I love the photo.
When I look at this picture, literally feel happy. It reminds me of Anne of Green Gables. I wish I could walk this and breathe in the fresh, crisp air. The perfect fall walk = a hot apple cider + cool air + jacket & scarf
