... in a blue glass bowl.

Exposure Compensation at +1. RGB tone curve to lighten, Blue/Yellow curve to whiten the sour cream. Separate curve to darken the background, which had picked up a lot of ugly noise. Cloned out a bit of excessive reflection on the foreground edge and a few other stray spots..

Cropped/resized, two passes USM at 66%, 0.6 dia, TH=5, JPEG=8/10.

'blueberries & cream' would have been a nicer title

I like the bowl color and how it works with the blueberries. It would be nice to have a deeper DOF so at least the closer berries were sharp, though, and a little more light on the berries.

The focuspoint should have been more on the foreground, on the berries and the cream nearest to the camera with the bowl in the background out of focus, in that way this photo would have been much better IMHO.

That just doesn't do it for me...the bowl looks really nice but the berries are mostly out of focus and sour cream looks kind of nasty on there.
