I like the water droplets on this but the left side is a bit distracting. Just my opinion. Berries look good though! Mmmm blueberry waffles! NOM NOM NOM!!!

Great clarity on the berries. I think I would have cropped a bit of the leaves out though.

Very good use of DoF to put the focal point right on your subject. For blueberries they seem a hair green. It seems the entire picture has a green cast on it perhaps due to the reflection of the light off the green foliage. Not sure how to counter that except to selectively lower the green channel in PP.

Yummmm!!! This is really lovely, although it feel like there's a lack of brightness. The whole image seems a bit dark.

That would be a fun calendar, and this would be a wonderful shot for it.

At first glance I thought this was going to be boring with the out of focus leaves on the left side, but as I switched to the next image I caught a glance at the blueberries. Those are gorgeous!

I don't know if a different crop would help with this composition or not. As it is, even though the leaves are not in focus they dominate nearly a whole half of the screen. Since I scan an image left to right my eyes got bored by the time they got to the blueberries and had already sent the signal to my brain to hit the next button.
