Interesting choice to have the stem in focus - I think it was a good choice. Your colors remind me of an old painting. This would probably look great on a wall somewhere.

this isn't a bad idea, but I think the DOF is too shallow and needs to encompass part of the body of the pear.

Almost looks like a painting. Nice soft lighting

Bigger part in focus and grapes more blurred would help.
Pear too centered and takes up too big part of the whole image.
Lightning and tones of color are somewhat strange.

The OOF area dominates the photo rather than enhancing the focal point of the subject; the stem. Pleasing colors though.

This one works very well for me. Thanks.

Wow - you have some great bokeh circles inthe background. Wait - are those grapes? just kidding. I really like the composition and the main focus and clarity of the stem. Great earthy colors and a very nice feel to it overall. While maybe no "proper" circles of light and such the blurred background easily adds to this image. A pleasant shot.

Really like the idea. Would like to see more lighting on the pear.

I believe that this shot would have been much better should one has placed some more lighting. In my opinion this is a flat shot... Sorry
