Not sure about the white spots? If this is effectively a still-life, you need to make sure the subjects are perfect specimens, if that involves wiping the fruit clean before shooting.
I would also have removed the front stem too.

Really though, it is just a front lit picture using built in flash. Why not try lighting from the side? Maybe use a torch instead of your flash? As it is, there is no modelling, no texture and no shadows...it might as well be a cardboard cut-out. There is no depth information, and that only comes with moving the light source. Time to get more creative, rather than just letting the camera make all the decisions for you.

thank you Nick. your explaination had given my mind open. i agree with you about cleaning the fruit and the front steam. actually i never realized this until i edit the image but it was too late. i knew there is something missing in the image after i edit it. but i do not know what is that. i guess it fell of the depth as you said. the manggoes itself still in the tree and the bg not really black. is it better to make it more lighter with bg not really black and the manggoes not sharp enough so i can get the feel of depth?
