I love the thought that you put into this arrangement. I'm curious tho about the two strawberries and their location. Great use of the soft and subtle light.

Nice fruit, nice image -- dark tones work well here but the strawberries and grapes are fighting a bit for my attention (in the end, I favor the grapes) (Comment only, no vote)

A little bit dark in places but a lovely setup.

The antique effect created by your lighting makes this looks like a painting from a master.

I really like this...but the strawberries look out of place.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Another classic that's very well done. I like the tones and the lighting. So...how many comments do you have on those strawberries? :-P They seem so out of place. Good luck in the challenge.

Amazing! Love the strawberries! 10!

Wow, this is really magnificent! Well... until I get to the strawberries... *sigh*

They're out of place, I think, because their color is too much for the "subduedness" of the rest of the fabulous image.

I'm not voting anyway, so don't mind me! :)

Still, I hope this does well for you. It's lovely.

Very nice comp, lovely lighting, just not sure if you really needed the strawberries. IMHO think a crop on the right with the vertical line, and no strawberries, would have made for a better shot.

I like the Old Masters sense of it. Maybe a bit too busy for my taste. I'd remove the book, the two strawberries and the metal whats-it. Love the grapes, the pear and the urn. The metal grates in the background add some nice texture.
