I think the crop will be my downfall on this one. It's straight out of the camera with the right side cut off dang it, and I would have liked more of the bowl showing on the bottom but oh well. As a beginner, I'm pretty pleased with this and I'm learning soooo much about lighting. The only post processing done was to clone out a small dark spot to the right of the pear stem.

By the way, that's a plum not an apple

Thanks for the comments everyone! I liked the bright lighting on this on and so did my friend who works at a photo gallery, but I guess it's not for everyone. I also wonder if everyone thought the plum was a weird looking apple... I can't wait to get a bounce flash... thanks again.

The way the fruit is so small and lonely feeling in the bowl (a beautiful turning by the way) bothers me. I think a single piece of fruit in the bowl, the pear perhaps, would have really pushed the scale change and made it work better.

OK on the fruit, but really nice on the wood grain.

Lighting could be improved, colour a little washed, framing good have been a little better. Bettr luck next time.

Focus is a little soft and looks to me as though the WB is a little off.

Light seems a little too harsh for my tastes.

I would have liked to see the bowl fuller. it's a bit boring now.

Lighting too harsh, need to soften the flash and get focus sharp. Nice composition
