Welcome, very good first up-load.

The only things I would change are the background has a sight pink cast over it, if you've got Photoshop elements the 'enhance'/'auto colour correction' is very effective at correcting this kind of thing. The only other thing, and I'm being really picky now is that the stem is just a little long and tends to pull your eye out of the picture. All that said it still a very good shot.

I would hate to think my suggestions were taken as discouragement, far from it. I always try to be contructive with any comments made. I thought the whole point of the site was to get the opinions of others.

I like this a very good first image, for the next time try a piece of white card opposite the kight source to bounce some light back this should light the straberry more evenly and reduce the hard shadow.

Lovely first upload Laura, real texture to the fruit, can almost smell strawberries and cream.

(Many thanks for your comment on my gentians, I had not spotted this upload until then. If you comment more on other folks' uploads they will start to look at yours. Thanks again).

James, that is the point of this site, and your comments are rightfully also very constructive! Don't stop! Without out people like you the site would become a pointless exercise in false praise.

By the way, I think this is an excellent shot, I don't personally have a problem with the pink tint, but do think chopping off the brown end of the stem may have improved it slightly. Perhaps You can still do digitally. With a pale background, a border may also inhance the picture for display on this site.

By the way, its true that adding comments will get you clicks, but your picture has done extremely well with out you having to drum up attention, while other members on this page average 50 comments per a gallery up load to get the same number. I think your image is speaking excedingly well for itself!

As your first upload you've now raised our expectations. An Excellent portfolio is now expected!

Well done

Tim
