Locals in Swiss village swear this passion fruit cures multiple aches and pains.
PP.. some clarity and cropping with level adjustments.
Not really expecting much on this but wanted to keep away from just pills and tablets

Greetings from the Critique Club!

So we meet again, Jonny...hehehehe....:-)

I like the bright poppiness of the colours here, and your choice of a natural setting. I also appreciate that you chose to stay away from the pills/tablets that dominated the entries in this challenge. And it was encouraging to see a more homeopathic entry took 2nd place. I like shots taken in situ, but there still needs to be a sense of context. I knew I was looking at a passionfruit, but the presentation is just a bit on the messy side.

A neatly sliced wedge of fruit, with more of the intact fruit visible in the background, would have helped drive the message home. Also, beware of portrait orientation - many voters dislike it as it means they have to scroll up and down in order to see the whole image.

As it stands, though, personally I would have used less ISO and more dof or some adjustments to take down the glariness of the pith (the thick white rind surrounding the fruit). If there had been a way to position the fruit without using the hand, so much the better.

Hope this helps!
