A very nice created image. The border does not have a tick in that box for me. I suggest a very light brown. Hope you take this a constructed criticism. Again your subject creativeness stands out. Well done. WesternRed.

A well composed shot. I don't know whether it's the strange quality of the light at the time or something in your processing, but there's an unusual effect here. I like it a lot.

Like Dougie I associate dates with Xmas. My parents used to get a hamper at Xmas, & there was always a box of dates in it.
