This is really gorgeous. I love your focus but I do have the slightest urge to up the magenta in the cherries, keeping it dark though. On the border, that light inner rim made it work for me. Very sexy photo! (p.s. great username)

The warm color creates a lot of drama in the photo Effective use of shallow dof. Framing is nice as well. Not really into this kind of border but not deducting points for that. 10

This looks like side lighting but is still a good photo

Awesome composition, I'm not sure about the border, I think a more even one would suite this shot better. Other than that wonderful image!

I really don't like the border here, it is distracting by not being even and takes away from the picture as is too heavy.

I like the picture itself ... it is really quite interesting.

I found the lighting a bit dark, I would like the light to work slightly more on the cherries - give them context in the picture.

I like the depth of field that you have used ... the cropping also works .. I don't even think that a huge border should be used to compensate for cropping - even a thin border works for this.

Hope this helps.

Nice shot. Just a matter of personal preference but I think I would rather see the whole glass in sharper focus.

Looks to be light from the back right - I'd actually like to see this picture lit a little stronger, adding some light frm the front, maybe. Very nice set up, nice angles.

There's something about this that I like. Maybe the warm soothing tones. The perspective is interesting.
