A modern take on the classic art form, with fruit the masters had probably never heard of. The arrangement is pleasing, with the wine and pineapple balancing each other giving some symmetry to the composition. The reflection is nice. My main complaint is the lighting: the tomatoes are mostly in shadow as are much of the bananas, yet the shadow of the pineapple on the background is barely visible.

Not sure why but I do like this - the lighting mabe needs a bit of white card reflection just to lift the right hand foreground 7

good try, but the lighting could be better. the shadows are too harsh and present.

I would have liked to have seen a tighter crop and a slightly different setup. The crop to be moved in from the right and the left. For the set up, maybe put the pineapple and the wine bottle closer together in the back and bring out the bannanas and tomatoes. That way not everything is in a straight line and if will add some depth. I like the light though.

Excellent technically. Soft subtle lighting.

Nice composition. The tomatoes and bananas seem a little dark on the bottom, probably from the dark surface they are sitting on. I do like the reflection on the table though. And the lighting above is very nice.

Little too lined up. The light is good and the focus is good.
