the front pear could perhaps have been moved slightly back in the shot so that all the spines would have been in shot the bit at the back that you would have lost wold not matter as the shallow dof is blurring it any way,and the foreground would have had a bit more detail,but i think it is a good pov, good colour and detail may be taken the white cloud out to give a totaly blue sky. i think it is a good overall shot. hope this helps.once stuck my hand on one at St Julians bay, never again.

As stated above, the largest pear is a bit too close to the edge of the frame. I like the diagonal composition, and the depth of field does not bother me at all. What was your aperture setting for this? I really like the colors against the blue sky. My only critique is in the nearness of the subject to the edge.

Hi all
Yes I agree that the pear is a bit close to the left. In the original photo (Jpg /nef ) infect it is not that close to the edge. When doing cropping I have done the mistake.If it will be possible I will upload the same image as I originally was taken.
Joline you asked me what aperture I have used/ Focal length 46.00mm,35 equivalent 69mm, 1/500sec.
F. 5.3
Iso 100

Thanks for your interest in my portfolio, and your support.
