I think you pushed the contrast and the saturation a little too much on this one. I am not liking the white part at the bottom right. The background would have been better as all dark tones.

not a fan here... the selective desaturation would've had more impact if the actual banana was so out of focus and peel-colored. the lips are too shadowed and the focal point is slightly too far back, giving us a view usually reserved for the dentist.
restoring a ruby-red colour to the lips would help bring attention there instead of past them to the in-focus area of the image.
