    very nice!!! i like the grapes + lime. the ones with the wine opener do not work for me though. but very nice overall.

    Hi I think it's rather well executed except for maybe the theme. Technical wise i have no complaints.

    6-10 nicely done. love the play on shadows

    2 is good, 5 has potential but what are you trying to show with the wine opener?

    for number 1, i would have preferred the entire reflection captured as well.

    I like the dark background. Personally I really admire image 2 and 10.

    Thanks ppl for the critique

    6 to 10 are something different from the rest as i took the pic with a DIY grid snoot..the rest are mostly DIY shoot throught umbrella on the camera right and a styloform to fill the subject on the camera left to get a soft lighting

    hope u dun mind me saying some stuff.

    wrt technically, do watch the hotspots on the fruits. some of them have it like pic 6 n 9. i am assuming you are only using a light source for all of the shots.

    whats your intention more to the abstract genre or more on creative product photography?

    flipfreak.. of course i dun mind your advice . .. i delighted to have as many as possible to improve my shot

    for this seris i am more into creative product photography.

    For the hot spot it is actually cause by the diy snoot grid that i have on my sb600, which is the only light sourse for this series.

    Any suggestion on how can i redure these hot spot ??

    slaam . thanks ...i try to explain through word hope it is ok .

    Fruit are place on top of a black table with clear plastic sheet (my dining table ) that y you see the reflection . Al shot taken with D80 and kit lens .

    1 to 5 and 11 is done with sb 600 shoot through umbrella on camera right with a styroform board on camera left and top as a fill light , at 1/200 or 1/160 at high f/stop you can check the pic exif (soory cannot remember )

    the rest of the pic setting is the same except that i use a diy straw grid to control the spill of light .

    hope the above is clear

    i am not sure how the hotspot came abt. could be because of the power, could be because the flash head was zoomed. if u using a grid, it shld not be as harsh as a snoot. esp a straw grid.

    try moving the light further away from the item.

    u might want to work on your cropping and composition. try using more of the same fruits instead of different one to get a more cohesive feel. thats how i would do it.
