The picture is captured nicely. The lighting is superb. I don't usually spend time commenting on the frame but I must say this one is not good. The blurryness goofs up my eyes when I try to look at the edges. A frame should confine not punish. Sorry.

I like the colors in this, but I'm not sure I like the border.

Interesting composition. I really enjoy the balance of this still life. The dof hints at more interesting items that go beyond the frame. I'm not sure what those items might be--your clues are perhaps not defined enough for that--but this is nevertheless an interesting and engaging photo!

From the fruit back the picture works very well for me. The foreground including the container for the 'fruit tree' looks to be blurred after the image was captured. Am I wrong?

reminds me of the decorative oranges people grow.. i was down in phoenix with a buddy of mine at his grandma's summer home... every plant there is the devil.. cacti are soooo lame.. some of their needles jut out of the ground feet away from the base of the actual plant! HOW LAME IS THAT??? well, nobody told me.. anyway, after i stopped bleeding, we had a 'ornamental orange' brawl.. we chucked those things at each other for so long. they smelled really good but apparantly they're really acidic.. wow.. no reason to tell you that story, but i'm not deleting it now.. nice picture.

I like the oranges against the out-of-focus abstract background. IMHO cropping out the whole right-hand part of the picture would improve it dramatically.

A touch busy, but nicely thought out color scheme. You do seem to be a little overexposed on the fake plants to the right...

I don't care much for the border but otherwise a fine entry
