Nice colours, seems a bit noisy though. Not very fond of the cropping, I think more space at the top would work better. Maybe a portrait orientation.

Nice deep red and good overall tone. Maybe its just me but this photo seems to have a bit of noise though.

Very pretty. I love tomatoes. The lighting creates a halo around where the fruit fell off of the vine. I think I'd like a tad different perspective but that's just me. 7

Good picture..
Something about it just ticks me off, though.
I'll come back to you whenever I figure out what it is. ;)
