Nice. There's something a little strange about the black outlining of the pears where they are against the green. Kind of makes them look pasted in. Maybe a little over sharpened?

I don't remember sharpening it at all.
I did alot of post process, and it might be some of that that you are seeing, possibly too much contrast making it appear oversharpened.
I will certainly have to work on that in the future.
Thanks Matthew

I greatly appreciate everyone taking the time to comment.:D

I really enjoyed looking at this series. What are you using for your light source? For some reason I like the blue dish image the most, and per the cherries image, your placement of the pits versus the whole fruit runs contrary to my thinking, but that said, your way shows the two off better.

Very good.

Thanks Kevan,
I think the pits look a bit too "placed", a bit too intentional.
Not sure if they really work in the image.
As for lighting, it was a simple flashlight, nothing fancy.

p.s. thanks for looking and taking the time to leave feedback.
