I really love the soft dreamy look of this. It reminds me of one of those old world paintings. Great job, Jimmy -- I think this is quite underrated.

I like the soft focus used here, but wish the berries in the centre didn't merge into the background so much. Also the central composition is a tad uninteresting.

I really like the tones but the placement of the fruit is kind of funky...

Too much bowl, not enough fruit. A little too dark as well.

Very nicely setup. I love the darker style of this shot, with the soft focus. Very good idea and well shot.

Makes me think of Rembrandt's "Man in the Golden Helmet" - with that glowing painterly feel. Quite lovely. The centering of the subject works beautifully.
