Interesting use of color. Needs a better light angle.

Well done indeed - creating a nice arrangement of colors and shapes. My only problem is that the background has a definite gray cast - it would look so much better if it were white. I expect you shouold finish way towards the top.

Great idea. Maybe it would also be fun to zero in on one of those very nice compositions and try to make it 'pop!' Still, a good take on the Challenge.

Great color. Slightly out of focus. I would have left out the individual pieces of fruit for better composition. Looks good enougth to eat!

This is a great idea. Very fun. The lighting and soft focus are the problems. The contours of the surface are a little distracting as well. This would have been great on a transparent backlit surface.

Great colors and shapes, it looks quite tasty. These are all combinations that are put together regularly, so I had to score it in the middle. It just doesn't say wacky to me

Better, stronger lighting would have made this a killer composition.
Fruit on a white, translucent background with a light under it maybe, more frontal lighting. Backlighting would give the fruit more "pop"
Excellent idea though. (which there is a shortage of in this challenge)

Very artistic and yummy looking. If the lighting were better (it looks too flat) I would have given it a higher ranking.

Nice arrangement but the directly over the top perspective is a bit boring. Maybe shoot from the side and use shallow DOF to your advantage. Also try various colored backgrounds to minimize disctractions. Also, not sure what these fruit slices are resting on but the border resembles a cabinet door and seems out of place. Contrast and focus (to a lesser degree) need some work as well.

Nice composition, but It needs some better lighting to eliminate shadows and produce more vibrant colors and a whiter background. Focus is a little soft in some areas of the pictures... or maybe the fruit was just a little too ripe... :-)
