    Congratulations Mary. Yes, the muted look is one central element of the beauty of your picture.

    I like everything about this picture but the sharpness. The idea, the composition, the lighting, those beautiful colors - everything is perfect and would have been high in my votes ... But I'm sorry, the focus is so far off.
But you did everything right and it's hard to get sharp pictures in low light, so it still has to be in my TT.

    Great container to not only display the bananas but also adding an artistic flavor to the composition. My eye says one click in rotation to the right would have been called for.

    I like the composition and colour but the image appears unsharp - camera movement perhaps. The lighting and background colour are perfect.

    A nice classic pose with lovely lighting.

    Old Finn and Jade, thanks for your kind comments.

Andris, the post processing in CEF added a vignette to the image. The original image was much sharper, but I preferred the more darker, muted look. And yes, I have used a tripod when I felt it was necessary.

    Lighting, colour, background. Same commentary as my no. 2 pick but this is no. 3 because there is some tension in the out of focus parts of the bowl in the foreground and the banana stem in the background. It may be the whole is slightly out of focus or suffering from camera shake at 1/5s. But that aside, you have a wonderful touch with light, colour and the good sense to use the right background for the shot. Superb.

    Nice composition in classic style. Good work, my nr 1.
