My eye keeps getting pulled to the brightest 'stalk (?)' in back (unfocussed). Perhaps burn it in and darken it. I would like to have seen the back fruit in focus, and the colors saturated a bit more, but that's just personal taste.

Maybe crop out some of the background? It may just be my middle-aged eyes can't handle it, anymore. *grin*

Actually prickly pear fruit. You knew that! I think the bukeh in this one is just right. Nice capture and good work. Can't wait to see who took this one. Good luck!

interesting take on the challenge. too bad about the blowouts. you have achieved a bokeh effect, but it is rather bland, and doesn't really do much for your subject.
