At all? et al maybe? Either way, nothing too exciting here.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Strawberries are definitely one of nature's sweet and tasty treats. To be very honest the composition is just average. The composition does have potential it just needs some TLC to improve. First off the grassy/weeds that the strawberry boxes sit in detract from the visual appeal of the photo. Plenty is good when wanting more, but there are sooo many strawberries that it is hard to tell which box of strawberries we should look at and appreciate. One needs a focal point that will anchor the image. A suggestion to improve the visual appeal is to give your audience a small portion - a small basket of strawberries say. The advantage is that you bring in your audience closer to show off the rich red beauty of these sweet fruits. Showing a few will also show off any great details such as the seeds that dot the skin. You will show us more with close-up small portions and increase the visual appeal.

You can make a lot of desserts with these. I think it needs a different angle and brighter light to make it look more interesting.

Your image has no focal point to draw the eye.

This is a tough challenge to vote. I'm torn between "what are you trying to do here" and "what do I expect here". Further complicating matters is the question "what would I do here".

What I would expect would be a technically strong piece of eye-candy that would present the dessert in a way that I would want to at least sample it, if not order it. Along these lines I'm looking at technicals: backgrounds, distracting elements, exposure, sharpness. I'm also looking for creativity, imagination, and originality, which can make up for less than perfect technicals.

So, where does this leave me with your image?

Raw materials for both a dessert and an image...

Fruit? yes! Dessert? Of course, but it's so many steps away from being the end-of-the-meal offering that I don't get the "dessert" part.
