I do like pictures of Kiwi fruits, this is good.
However I think more could be achieved, the use of light has caused lots of bright spots and reduced the amount of detail available. A softer more natural light would more suited, or, cutting a thickish slice and laying it on a lightbox, allowing the inner detail to be seen as well.
Get as close as possible to get maximum detail, don't be scared to crop the edges off the fruit, this does distract slightly.
Use manual focussing to get a sharper picture, this does seem to be a tad soft to what a 150 can achieve.
Hope this helps in some small way?
Regards
Stewart

Hi I'm pretty new to photography and wondered about these light boxes as have heard them mentioned. How much are they and what sort of effects can it be used for? I really like images like these, try tomatoes too! Rach
