I shot this in my basement yesterday. It was just for fun. I wanted to try a product or food picture. It was cheaper to buy some fruit than a new watch. LOL Any C&C is welcome. (FYI...I normally shoot people)

I like the idea. Very cool. Need to try this some day.
Did you try to place the slices off centre so that they are not stacked
diretly top of each other??

I thought this was going to be a still life of some fruit in a bowl and I am pleasantly surprised.
My sister is a designer and does food styling for product shots sometimes. There are a lot of amazing tricks that can be done with food. You should look into a food styling book if you want to shoot some more stuff like this.

Anyhow, props to being creative!

I like it and disagree with the comment that it's blown out. The background is very white, yes, but the fruit itself looks right on my calibrated monitor.

I agree, it's well-exposed or just a hair hot on the left but very creative and colorful!

Yeah, I don't see it as being blown out on my calibrated monitor either.

Maybe just a tad over exposed but not blown out. At least from what I see. Here's an edit with one stop less exposure and tweaking in PS. Not a perfect edit but you get the idea.

I'd keep the original exposure on the fruit and even lighten up the background, maybe not as much as in the edit. It looks more fresh in the original exposure.
