I do like the composition and the colours very much. Maybe the DOF is a bit too narrow: parts of the fruit are out of focus too. A little wider DOF might have been better. Good luck.

two things I noticed right away and not sure how to fix one of them... First of all this looks flat (no depth) and I attribute that to TOO shallow DOF. The other thing is that the blade appears to not be straight and I'm sure that is a perspective issue and I have no clue what to do for that in this instance.

My favorite. Just a tad of backlite on the grape for seperation to my eye.

Good idea, for some reason, perhaps postprocessing, the grape looks very flat! might be too much USM? Or it might be the lighting you used.

Lovely colours. Would have been nice to see the knife in sharper focus also.

While on the whole I think there tend to be too many pictures of fruit and flowers for this particular chanllenge, this is quite unique. Good work.
