Lychees are fruit, like apples and oranges. You eat, after you take the shell off of course... A hard pip is surrounded by the white jellylike flesh. Get them a lot here in South Africa.

I love lychee nuts, they're so creamy! I like the fact that the pile of lychees is raised.

I like the muted colors! The whole thing is a nice presentation of hue, with a boost of interesting texture. Just off-center, there appears to be a whitish "hole" which suggests that this pile of lychees isn't very deep. For what this image meanss to me, I'd like to imagine pounds and pounds of fruit, so the hole breaks the spell. But all told, this is a beautiful photo.

This is an interesting image... One of my personal hang ups is that I don't care for photos that lack 'dimension'. I love a full three dimensional effect moreso that a flat appearance. The texture here is also nice, but the flat color leaves me begging for more... - jmsetzler
