Excellant detail! you are a credit to anal-retentive perfectionist photoshop users everywhere. Good lighting as well. But, the red could be a notch more saturated for my taste.

Great close-up and details. Perhaps saturate the red some more?

the colour of the strawberries is not sharp enough. if they were a vivid red, it would be a good thing to highlight them.

I like the approach you have taken with this shot. I do believe that it could use a boost in the saturation of the reds. Maybe a slight change in composition...placing the strawberries more in the left corner, giving more of a view of the shapes of the other fruits so that they aren't quite as abstract might add some emphasis on the berries themselves as they pop off the screen in red. I know I'm rambling, but that was what kind of jumped out at me. Good shot, could be a little more powerful. :o)

Good choice of subject. I think this would have been stronger had you boosted the red saturation to really make the berries pop.

I think you could have improved the impact by adjusting the red levels or placed the strawberries in more direct sunlight, just seems a bit dull.

if i saw strawberries that coluor, i might want to steer clear. they just look too pale here... i would definitely be tempted to select them and make them darker and bolder, bringing a deeper red out. when photographing fruit, the more you can make the viewer salivate, the more successful the image.

The strawberries need more OOMPH!

The Red color might be a bit brighter for a higher score, at least for my 2cents worth.

Yum! I can almost taste the strawberries, and they look so much redder against the black and white background.

Suggestion. I would have pumped up the saturation a bit!

This would have had so much more impact had the strawberries been brighter in color. The tone & image quality was great BTW.

Good execution.

Waaaaaay too tight of a crop to make the desaturation effect work. Not enough contrast in the orginal shot to make what you have showing insteresting.

Pretty good, but for strawberries, they look very bland. . . vibrant ripe red one's would've been much better.
