Wonderful shot. Don't know what you used for the cloth, but it was perfect. Nice lighting for grapes and absolutely no shiny spots on the bottle. I agree with the "looks like a painting" comment.
Congratulations on 4th!

This could have been a really boring shot in the wrong hands, but you have made the colors so rich! I love it!

Great still life. I love how you've managed to make the colour in the grape really pop. 8

Edit Bumping to a 9. Top 10 pick.

Although the grapes do look plastic, its a fantastic image, and it works very well. I'd normally think real grapes would have been the best thing to do, but you show me that isn't true, because the matt shine on the grapes give this image something special. For a basic challenge, the lighting is fantastic too! Love this

I don't really quite like the photo. But, it's not what I like and is about photography and the challenge: you've captured a great photo. 10

The colors and setup here are great. Maybe would've cropped a little more on the left side, but its lovely the way it is, too.

This is very nice and very well executed. And while this particular interpretation of the theme is very overdone I think you have pulled this shot off very well. The only thing I would like to see is a touch more light in the red grapes, and perhaps a tiny bit more exposure overall. Apart from that, love it.
