Hi all,

I saw this box of mangosteens during Chinese New Year on my visit to my grandparents' house and I thought they looked photogenic. Here I attempted a macro shot which places focus on the mangosteen closest to the camera. The focus is then gradually faded throughout the rest of the frame.

True then eye is drawn into to the shot with this technique, very well done for a compact and its limited DOF.
However for critique, i'd suggest that there is nothing your eye is being drawn in towards, and that the beauty of any one individual fruit is not there to be seen. perhaps next time lift one up to make it stand above the others so it can be seen as well.
