Fresh fruit in chocolate dough with some jelly and whipped cream. A lot of work to make, but it was delicious.

I rank this one near the top. I like how the different types of fruit and chocolate form layers and stripes of different colors that lead the eye diagonally across the image.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Colorful, sweet and delicious - I really enjoy the close-up view you give us of this dessert. The red of the rasberry really pops vibrantly and draws the eye in instantly. You have captured great details on the red berry and the chocolate 'cups' that hold the cream and fruit. The foreground in the front is nicely focused for details and then the eye travels back to see all the sweet treats in the background horizon - making it appear that the promise of sweet delights is vast and unending:-) My only critique is that it may increase the visual appeal a bit more if just a little more of the fruits were in sharp focus before it falls off into bokeh. Not too much though; just from the rasberry and the two blueberries behind it.

This is definitely a different looking desert for sure. nice texture on the berry up front. the composition is ok but think i would like to see a different angle as well before deciding if i wanted to try this dessert.

This is a tough challenge to vote. I'm torn between "what are you trying to do here" and "what do I expect here". Further complicating matters is the question "what would I do here".

What I would expect would be a technically strong piece of eye-candy that would present the dessert in a way that I would want to at least sample it, if not order it. Along these lines I'm looking at technicals: backgrounds, distracting elements, exposure, sharpness. I'm also looking for creativity, imagination, and originality, which can make up for less than perfect technicals.

So, where does this leave me with your image?

One of the best! Excellent composition, exposure, and color palette. Great details in the shadows. Luscious! I'll take a carton, please!!

At first I thought that kiwi slice was a pickle. LOL! Vision check in aisle 10. Looks yum!

Not sure what to do with this one... but a couple of things come to mind:

First, It would have been nice to cut down the highlights. Looks like maybe a window highlight on one side but a brighter spot on the other? Maybe finding a way of making the light source on the right not so harsh?

Also, for how much I love raspberries (and I really love raspberries!!) the hairs on the raspberries make it a little less appealing. (and I'm surprised by that. strange, but true.)

I like the dof. I'm curious what it would have looked like from a slightly lower pov.
