This is one of those times when I think I have a 6. I am pretty much never right when I think this. It's an easy to understand image, fulfills the challenge in an obvious way, pretty, tack sharp, beautiful blur from my L lens... we'll see.

curves to up the contrast a little. That's all.

skewsme tells me that the "centered" composition, i.e. the "empty" area on the right, will cost me that 6. Oh well. I tried "fixing" it but I find other compositions are boring, and this shot is already teetering on the edge of empty prettiness, so I will keep the full frame.

Wonderful fractured look. My comment disappeared - probably courtesy to my ipad. 8 in my book

I know it is just a difference in interpretation of the challenge, but to me the primary color of this image is beige. Still, it is a nice composition and I like your shallow DOF.

Not a bad photo, but really doesn't stick out for me. Maybe getting a little closer to the berries would help.
