Simple scenes such as this appeal to me. It'd be nice to see some fresh apricots atop the crate along with the jars, though, partly because I wouldn't have known what the jars contain except for your thread title. Also, the top jar seems somewhat precariously placed.

I hope you don't mind my offering suggestions. If this were the Critique Corner, I'd offer a couple more that might or might not be useful to you.

Sorry it took so long to reply - I just noticed your response this evening.

I appreciate your comments and would love to hear what else you have to say about the image.

To your points: I would have placed a couple fresh 'cots in the composition, but my wife used every last one in the canning process. Also, I purposely placed the one jar to add a little drama to the scene.

Here's a label I created for my wife should she ever go commercial...

I like the image as far as it goes, but...

To your points: I would have placed a couple fresh 'cots in the composition, but my wife used every last one in the canning process.

It does need something extra for me. If not the apricots, maybe a loaf of bread & a slice with the preserves on it?

Also, I purposely placed the one jar to add a little drama to the scene.

If it was tilted more & falling over, that would be dramatic for me. Now it just looks like a sloppy shot w/out attention to detail, & the vertical wall doesn't look vertical, either.

As for "Apri-Cat Preserves"... Clever, but cat lovers are going to run away... screaming!   ; D

That'd make a good label. Maybe you should affix one to a jar and try some product shots for fun.
