Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hi! This was one of those shots that really made me think during the challenge trying to figure out just how it met the challenge and still not sure if I get the true meaning but I'm guessing from the title that you are talking about the edge of pain that can be inflicted?

Anyway about the shot. I like the overall shot, the simplicity of it but the composition left me wanting a bit. I'm thinking the imbalance of the stem of the cherry cutting up the negative space across the top is what is throwing me off. Maybe if you had removed the stem and left that area clear? The focus also seems off just a tad on the cherry itself but very clear on the wire and while DOF is usually a good thing, to me on a close up shot like this, everything should be in focus. Also, if the wire coming in on the left came out of the corner instead of just above it.

I hope all this helps.

Good Luck In Future Challenges!

Very colorfull! I like the black background and wire used in this image! I bet your picture ranks in the top ten so I give it a 1 cause I like so much! (Kidding) No I give it a 10 really!

I'm not entirely sure how to interpret this, a cherry bomb maybe? no? lol

Nice shot, good colors. It doesn't quite fit with the subject to me, though.
