I have always loved this Beatles song, and I also Love Strawberries as well. I visited a Strawberry Farm not that far away from where I live, to take this shot. The amazing thing is, that it is actually called "Strawberry Fields".

I took along some props to help enhanse the image. I then arranged a couple of wine glasses on a stand, and added sparkling liquid to the glass, plus some yummy strawberries on top and in the glasses.

I am pleased with the result I achieved.

I love the photo (and the song) but once again i think it could use some sharpening.

Good idea. Strawberries could be more sharp. The ones outside the glass seem out of position or placed in an unnatural way for some reason. Glare to right of berries doen't seem to fit.

too monotone, and strawberries seem too thrown in

The foreground elements hurt this IMHO because it's hard to comprehend what is going on ... the field is great and perhaps a simple strawberry somhow in the foreground would be more effective. 6

This could have been brilliant - but I think you've over done it with the strawberries. Those in the foreground (not in the glass look really out of place. The ones in the glass are great - and I love the reflection, but it's lost with those other strawberries obscuring part of it.

very pretty. I think whole strawberries, looking just picked, might fit in more naturally, but I like the picture nevertheless.

I like the graphic lines and the contrasty quality of the light on the leaves - I'm less sure about the over-done arrangement of strawberries bottom left. I think I'd have believed they werer strawberry plants without that - and there's an incongruity about these berries collected with a bunch of not-in-fruit plants.

Great job on the perspective and vanishing point. The glass in the lower left adds interest and detail. Whatever that is in the bottom middle of the image reflecting stars of light is minorly distracting. Excellent overall though.

Great job!!! I love the leading lines in this one. And the splash of strawberry red in all that field :) I love it!!

Would have liked to have seen a little more ''forever'' angle, but nice photo.

Good idea to add the strawberries to the picture since the plants weren't baring.

It's strange to see strawberries growing outside - here in Japan they always grow them in "veneer" houses.
The strawberries seem to be floating in midair- it took a while to see that they're on a glass. Maybe it would have been better to show what the glasses were resting on.

NOTE.... I'm looking at the image first and tyrying to guess the title. If I can't guess, I can't give high marks :-(

everything spot on, had no probs guessing what it was
