Don't these colors just pop, when together? Appealing composition, but I feel a very deep DoF would be best.

Nice colors and lighting. The idea is a little different than the other so the blueberries add more interest to the photograph.

I love integration. I had peas in a banana peel but did not like it. The blue berry adds something I was missing...

I love the colors here! It's a very simple shot but really holds my attention.

Jury is still out on how the voters are going to react to those blueberries in there... ;^) I like the pop it gives this image and was a interesting choice to make. Overall, well done. Good luck!
