Hi Simon Grin .. I think you've handled the depth of field well which sets the cluster apart nicely, although the fruits themselves could perhaps do with a touch of unsharp, but I wonder if it might be worth cropping out most of the background and homing in on the fruit. Maybe position the cluster at the lower end of a portrait layout or to one side of a landscape layout .. I think there's a really nice close-up (or at least closer-up, depending on the size of your original file) of the cluster ..

I'm alsa making the assumption, which might be incorrect, that you have access to Photoshop or software like that ..?

Just my thoughts though .. others may have different feedback Grin

Thanks for the feedback Suzi. The photo is exactly how it came out of the camera (except reduced in size/quality to post on here). I'll have a play around in Photoshop and see what I can do with your ideas.

Have had a quick play and uploaded to my website. See here.

Haven't really used Photoshop before, lots to learn yet!

Glad you like it Suzi. The advice is much appreciated :^)

I took maybe 70 shots on my cycle to/from work today and was happy with about 6 of them!

I have absolutely loads to learn, some of the photos on this site are amazing.
