...from Critique Club...

Bon Jour Nathalie ;)

Great detail :)

Perfect, IMO. You managed to balance the shot very nice, even though you used a similar subject as your background. I would simply add a couple more oranges to fill in the white gaps. :)

Your lighting is very good on this shot. There aren't any harsh shadows, and the hot spots on the cut orange actually work nicely to create a sense of taste on the photo. I wish the leaf had been lit a bit more, as the color seems a bit dull. Focus is very good. :)

Very creative on the setup of this shot. I think your cropping is what makes this shot attractive to look at. I love tight crops, so this really works nice for me. Great job :)

A wonderfuly balanced shot, nicely executed, and deserving of its average vote...well done, congrats!

Cheers and good luck in the future challenges.

Great photo!
It makes me feel thirsty, it makes me wanting to make a fruit drink myself. :)
I like the composition, the colors are good, sharpness is ok. The green leaf makes it more interesting and complete. The glare from the fruit makes it look fresh and healthy.
The only thing it could do without is the reflection on the glass, haven't used my polarizer filter enough yet to know if that could take it away. This is my highest rated picture though. ;)

Luscious and tangy. I think this photo strikes the right balance. It's loaded with content and things to look at, but the composition ties it together, particularly with that bright pink circle of grapefruit flesh and green leaf. Nicely done.

great composition. the addition of the green leaf breaks up the oranges and reds just enough. also adds to the fresh picked feeling. nice sharpness and clarity. A bit shiny with the lighting. maybe a diffuser? anyway.. that is only a nit pick. I like this alot.

Beautiful colors and composition. The glare on some of the fruit is a little strong (hard to control, i know) and that looks like some kind of ivy leaf :P (nit pick). Great job! 9 Lisa
