This is my first DPchallenge entry. I've really enjoyed looking at and rating other members photos and decided to take it one step further. This was shot against a white poster board in my bedroom near the window. I used PS auto color, auto contrast and auto levels and cropped it just a bit and used USM on it and finished with Noiseware.

Thanks to everyone for their helpful critique of my first DPC entry. I have learned so much already and hope this is just the beginning of many more learning opportunities to come.

Lovely rich reds. The brown and texture to it make it actually look like (sorry) a turd. Touch more DOF to get a little sharper focus to the strawberry on the right. The leaves have great detail.

Change can be a good thing. The condensation reminds me that a little effort may be required but the results can be delicious. Wow points for the excellent close-up.

I like the vibrant red of the strawberry and the green looks sharp, fresh, and vibrant too. Personally would have preferred a little more white space on the sides of the shot to balance it up a little, and the water droplets on the plate are a little distracting.

Really fantastic color and detail. My only complaint is the drops of water on the surface in the foreground that distract a little from the overall image.

I love the brightness and colour of this image. The effect is bright and cheery. I would suggest that perhaps the right strawberry could be turned a little to show a bit more red. Also I would leave a little more white space on each side and add a simple border. Love the colour and texture though.

Good focus, colors and idea! Only a note: i don't like the drops of water on the white table (this is not a problem for the vote!).
Ops... another note: i'd like to see more red on the covered strawberry.
Good work!

Great colours and detail. Not keen on the water either on strawberry, chocolate or surface. Composition is not particularly strong. Maybe having the two strawberries at a more varied angle from each other?

Great photo! The strawberries are a little off-center. I'm kind of compulsive about that stuff, but this is a great idea nonethless. 8.

Before and After, or "Interracial Strawberries" I like it either way...

Very well taken, the plain strawberry looks delicious but the chocolate on the other strawberry looks wet.
