I like being surprised by unusual perspectives, and this photograph definitely falls into that category. Excellent work! Nominated.

Unusual point of view! Love how the centre looks like an opening between trees.

I'll be interested to know how did you do.
I put the slice onto a drinking glass (the diameter of the glass beeing approximately the same as the one from the peel, so there wouldn't be a shadow from the rim of the glass / I croped that part anyway so it wasn't that important) the whole thing went onto a glasstable with a white backdrop lying on the floor. I positioned the camera above the clementine and fired the flash from a hight under the glasstable facing the white backdrop.
(I don't have a trigger for the flash to use off camera so I chose a shutter speed long enough to fit a manually fired flash in )

You probably get by with either a drinking glass or a glasstable/glassplate. I chose both for two deliberations:
-I wanted some distance between the clementine and the glassplate so the plate would be totally out of focus in case I missed some dust or dirty spots on the glass -> therefore the drinking glass
-I didn't want to light the white backdrop with a flash through the glass -> glassplate to gain some distance to the backdrop (white paper in my case)

Thank for the explanation, good idea and nice realisation I hope you'll win
