Is the picture over sharpened? The strawberry looks unreal.

I like the black background on the main picture. Would have liked to have seen it as the backgound on the top small one too. Yummy photo

I saw the thumbnail for this and thought oooooo strawberries and chocolate, I'm a bit disappointed there's no chocolate but only because strawberries dipped in chocolate are amongst my favorite things. My initial disappointment has been more than made up for by the exquisite photography and beautiful composition.

Don't they have the most interesting skin? I've tried some macros myself. I really like how you got three different levels of detail here. Vibrant color, too.

Sorry about this comment. Not quite sure what it was from. I have a sneaking suspicion that my kid got on the computer whilst I was away. But now while I am here - I might as well go ahead and leave a critique club like comment.

I really like the color and detail on the strawberry. Vibrant without being overly saturated. The layout of the triptych works well too. I guess my only real complaint is the total desat of whatver the strawberry is above in the main pic. If it is chocolate I would personally like to see the chocolate browns underneath. I think it would give the image a more complete feel. It would have balanced out the color of the strawberry well. As it is it leaves the image feelig a little flat, or maybe its just that it makes the strawberry just feel like its just hanging there. Overall though nice image and composition.

Hope this makes up for the +- comment left previously. I apologize for that.
