Vanessa,

Nice theme. First shot is very nicely done. The socond shot seems like it needs a tad more DOF. The leaves are slightly more in focus than the surface of the strawberry.

Thanks for sharing.

Aloha

Nice pictures, great close-up, I like the 2nd one !!

You should maby add a little bit of saturation and/or contrast to the 2nd one

Or use a bit of minus flash compensation to reduce the power of the flash. If your camera has flash compensation, try a value of -0.5 and see if it improves the second shot. As Selvin noted, the DOF could be improved in the second shot.

No complaints about the first shot, except where is my dish?

Thanks for the comments. I totally agree with all of you on that second shot. Cal, thanks for the technical advice, I really appreciate it as I learn to use this new lens fully.
