my first "studio shot"; I wasn't sure about the mirror, as I could not get crystal sharp reflection no matter what-inherent property?

EDIT: CROP, adjust contrast, saturate, sharpen,resize

POST: YAHOO! a new PB, I was hoping it would get to 6.4. thanks for all the nice comments!

Nice work. The contrast between their shapes is very nice, yet their color tie them together. I like that there is slightly more space at the top than at the bottom. That keeps it from feeling quite so "centered" and thus static as a composition.

It is well lit and well focused. Mirrors are bears to focus in. Something about how the camera actually tries to focus on the back of the glass, no the image reflecting or something like that. I'm not sure how to get the reflection razor sharp (though at first glance, it is focused well enough to not be distracting, I think), but I have found if I can use as big an aperture number as possible, and not get horrendous glares on the glass, sometimes that helps.

It is a challenging shot, but you pulled it off well. Congrats on the good score.

If I need to further clarify or explain myself, please feel free to ask.

Anni...your PB, too? So cool!! Glad we were next to one another when this happened, lol! Beautiful studio work. Love the deep black background as the colors of the fruit really stand out!

Anni!! Wow! I think you got plenty crystal sharp! This is so incredibly striking and rich! I would have expected this to be in the VERY top few!! Certainly not 35th place! You did GREAT!

Congratulations tho on achieving your best score! This would be one I'd be so proud to have on my profile page!

Anni, congratulations on your PB score. This is a very nice photo. I like everything about it from the colors and textures that make it pop.

Very nice picture, I do like the colors and lighting is pretty good, I know how hard it is to get those textures to show.

I keep wondering about the lighting on the star fruit.. not sure what I'd like (more light or more saturation or something..) Nice pic though! -8-
