Beautiful shot but there is not a single piece of fruit in it! Those are all gourds.

Nice shot with very strong colors and crisp too. Good PS work. To make the shot perfect you could remove/clone/feather away the upper left cornr. It seems disturbing for the overall impression. If you don't know how, feel free to visit my website. Good shot!

i agree with both calr and klaus....

very nice shot, but the lack of gourds in the top-left corner is distracting...

:-D

Yes, I think that is an improvement.

thats a great shot, I spent ages trying to get a half decent fruit shot last month and nothing was as good as yours.

Well here I go being different. I like both, but like the first better. Being able to see the basket the gourds are being poured from doesn't bother me at all. The only thing I might change is to make it basket color instead of market basket blue. A warm golden brown say, to blend with the warmth in the gourds. Good Work.

I'm with Suzan on this one. I prefer the original. I like the basket included because it gives the concept of the gourds spilling out of the overturned basket. As always, everyone sees things differently. There isn't always a "right" answer.
