Hi Cole,

Greetings from the Critique club...

I like your play on words for the title.. it helps me know where you're going with the shot and it adds a bit of interest to it.

Technically the shot could use an edge(IMHO)-- much of it is oof although that could just be the slime on the bananas :) They appear soft (no pun intended -- really) and for a more domino-like feel some thing must be crisper. The bright light takes almost all the color away - it's flat and so adds no interest by itself. I like the diagonal line as it leads my eye through the shot. The black background is just right to set off the fruit.

I think you have a solid, albeit un-wow-factor shot.

Hope this has been helpful. PM me if you have any questions,

Great detail and DOF. The lighting could be softer though.

Ha. Clever. I wish the lighting weren't quite so harsh.
