Nice green colors. Excellent detail and sharpness in the papaya.

Many viewers will rate this lower because they will not consider it "real" family. They will "get it" but will feel that a family image should be emotive. This is not.

The foreground and image detail is good, but the sky background is overexposed. You might try selecting the background sky and toning down the brightness so it is not so overwhelming. This does not appear to apply any compositional rules and has almost a snapshot perspective to it. You might consider takin itt from different perspectives to give the view a "fresh" look to the subject.

The lighting is perhaps a little bit harsh, and it seems like a bit of a stretch to meet the challenge

This is a pretty cool way of showing family, the bakground steals from the focus of the shot,

generations and progression of age is a feature of families. Wish the sky wasn't quite so bright.

This is a clear photo with very nice coloration, but it's a bit blah for my taste. It's missing the ZING that really makes it a powerful photo. I think cropping the larger ones at the bottom and zooming in on the upper part might be a bit more appealing to me. Hope this helps.

I wasn't aware that fruit on trees was family. I can't even make a rational OOTB connection here. Nice shot. Great focus and DoF. But no family.

Well captured fruit tree. I like the tight close composition. But... family?

while your photo is pretty, it does not show any effort to meet the challenge. Perhaps you just enjoy sticking to floral and plant shots, but a lot can be gained and learned by expanding your horizons
