Love them! :)

Very nice style, good concepts.

Only slight niggle is the person holding apples, the lower hand is oddly cropping off a finger - but I still like the image :)

The feather in the heart-shaped dish is a good idea. However, the composition is not compelling. You have two shapes that can be moved and rotated, and three competing centers; the center of the document (the image's geometrical center), the center of the heart shaped dish and the white tip of the feather (which, because of its brightness and detail is going to be the domnant center of the composition). Make those three centers work together or in opposition to create interesting/compelling tension in the picture.

As it is, the rotation and placement of the feather seems sort of bland. It's not doing enough with the shape/position/rotation of the dish.

I also like the last picture, though the picture needs to be sharp thoughout to work.

Julie beat me to it. I like the heart shaped dish the best - definitely stay with this idea and work through all the possibilities. Same goes for the feather in the box - play around with the composition - position of the box, size of the subject within frame, etc.

I also like the last one, but you'll need to be careful with both the DOF and the harsh reflections off the water.

I like the feather in the square box. I love the colors. Although this is a bulls-eye composition, it works here. Very nice job.
