Post-Processing: Clone out a lot of dust spots, select/flip to balance tones, resize, sharpen.       Extra Info: Always, no sometimes, think it's me
But you know I know when it's a dream
I think I know I mean a yes
But it's all wrong
That is I think I disagree

    Congratulations Jade, the highlights in this one don't overly bother me. Sometimes a little blown highlights work.

    Thanks for all your votes and comments. I'll post an outtake.

Franz You always find something nice to say! ;-)

hifi Hate to tell you the light is pure incandescent.

    I was searching for a nice playground for this song - but have not many choices here in my hometown... You solved my problem ;-)
Yummy!

    Superb! Excellent control of natural light. A very well planned out scene that all comes together.

    Lo Maybe too luminescent -see outtakes for what may be a better photo though maybe it has less impact.

AG I thought about the vertical but rejected it as adding a distraction from the strawberries. I wanted to simplify without being too barren.

Old Finn The blown highlights I didn't see until later - always something to improve next time.

fc The cheese was just to try to add a lit but neutral off white element - I wanted the colour punch to come from the reds without looking too one colour like.

Explorer40 Thanks. The set up took all of five minutes literally and I did only one arrangement.

    Beautifully composed and executed. The lighting is perfect - it makes the colours so rich, they are almost luminescent.

    This is quite lovely, but I think it needs a vertical element. Other than that, everything seems to be placed nicely. The lighting is beautiful! I like it a lot, and it's in my top five. Good luck!

    Nice shot! Beautiful clarity and focus, great lighting, and wonderful composition. One of my favorites.

    babysister perfect fir? The title is really about a Children's Home and the grounds John Lennon used to play in yet the song really has nothing to do with strawberries but childhood memories and surreal drug tripping - you can guess which I was thinking of.

cookiejar A little off still but simplicity helped.

Peanut Thought about the wine but wanted to minimize to highlight the strawberries.

eagle1 I did this quick so I really need to compensate for the blown highlights.

johncomyn The blown highlights bother me a lot.

Mepo It's not the table top that makes it.... ;-)

    Fantastic photo but not a perfect fir for the song.

    A beautifully composed still life, well balanced with shapes, texture and colours. the mirrored surface works. I find the horizon line on the right very slightly off-putting. As far as the song is concerned, yes, the image has strawberries in it.

    Mouth watering. All it needs is a glass of wine.

    Interesting composition. The lighting is well done. I just ate, but it still makes me hungry to look at the image, so it must be good! One of my top choices.

    Ok, technically outstanding! This looks like the skills of Jade O.! If I am wrong take it as a compliment.

    Love the lighting and the composition including the empty space on top. Gotta get me one of those black topped tables, perfect reflections.
