Believe it or not this was a difficult shot, the eggs kept rolling out of line, the apples were not the same shape and not wanting to stand right, one of the apples was greenish yellow on the top, not the vibrant red I wanted and I did not have another apple, after shooting for more than an hour this is the best I could get, hope it does well.

Nice interpretation, and interesting textures. The lighting loses the actual shapes of the eggs and, to some extent, the apples.

a fun line-up. Wish you has larger Dof, or at least the front apple and egg were sharp and the focus faded out as you go back. To have a uniform background - either blue or white would make us look at the 6 and the dozen rather than the line between the blu and white.

Good dof and colour, shadows are a bit distracting for me, 5

Focus isn't working. The composition looks sloppy, its not an interesting angle. The blue surface looks grainy, and is not layed straight against the white.

i like this idea. i think it would be more effective on a solid color background (instead of the 2 colors), and I think I would have the focus more on the front objects and let the DOF trail off backwards.

Nice shot. The water on the apples looks rather artificial though as the balls (or eggs?) on the left are dry.

Interesting idea, creative. Your point of focus in the center is the weakness. The dof is shallow so too much oof overall. I love the blue, reds and yellows.

I like the picture. Great concept. Colors are good, clarity is phenomenal. I like being able to make out the dew drops on the apples.
I think the different colors for the back wall and the (table?) detract some.
Would have liked to have seen the focus on the fist apple, instead of the middle.
Also thought using oranges instead of eggs may have added a bit of punch and another layer of idiom to the photo.
