I really wanted to shoot an avocado but found it to be more difficult than I ever imagined hence the garlic. I didn't have the time to try and work it out. Oh well.

And I always wondered why a simple avocado shot is my best selling image on istock ;) BTW, this would make for a very good stock shot, too.

The shallow depth of field gives bite to the pic and the brownish tones add impact.
Tastefully done...(No pun intended)

I like the out of focus utensil in the background but it seems like there is a battle of the textures with the wood and the garlic itself. I still like it though.

I like this job. Nice colors, nice composition. But i think, that tool which are in background, must be vissible fully, not croped. And little bit more sharpnes.

Excellent backdrop choice.

Not voting just commenting. Nice composition and does have a magazine shot sort of quality to it. Lighting could be just a bit brighter.

i like the warmth in your choice of lighting. that "white" out-of-focus blob, touching the garlic on right-side, is distracting though.
