One thing I am proud of is that this is the original framing of the picture. I did not have to crop it at all. I try to do that as much as possible of course like every one, but this one I feel turned out nice in that sense.

I really like your composition here and lighting. My only suggestion would be to have stopped down a full stop or two to get the whole pepper in focus. Other than that nice work!

Nice shades of orange! This seems like a difficult color to capture. The water droplets add a nice touch.

I love the title. The colors and lighting are great! The water droplets are a great idea to add interest without really changing the subject a lot. The little highlights everywhere are great. I sort of wish the lighting was more even but that's just because it doesn't fit on my monitor, ahah

The focus is really good on the right side of the pepper. It is a bit softer on the "profile" edge though, and that takes a way a bit of the effect, I think. Good colors, though

My attention is drawn to the drops on the side of the pepper. I wish that was where the focus was. I also can't tell if your cloth is lumped in front of the pepper or if its the way the shadows fall. either way it is slightly distracting.
