From the Critique club

I think that pretty much of what has been said in the comments is true. Unusual perspective with the mirror image giving it a spin that has you look again and trace the lines of the pear back and forth.
Food in B&W is a tough one crack and as food needs to look appealing and tasteful, one has to draw more from an artistic angle to make this work. The black spot on this pear does not do your image any favours. I do feel that it would have done much better otherwise without this black spot. The focus is one of subjectivity. some would argue they love the softness on places and others would prefer sharpness throughout - at least on the pear itself and this will be of lesser importance on the reflection. Soft focus could be used more effectively in this image but the angle you shot from makes this extremely difficult to create the right mood and feel needed for it. SO... sharpness is needed on the pear in total..without a blemish.

I love the perspective! Unusual for a reflection shot. Funny how the hole in the skin personifies the top pear!

Sorry, but the hole in it doesn't make it look very appetizing to me, and most of it seems soft.
