    Did u use a tripod? If not, most likely it is due to camera shake at such slow shutter speed.(1/4s)

    nice colours.. yar it's abit blur, have you tried using USM to sharpen it? one way to get sharp pics is to mount the cam on a tripod then use the auto timer to trigger.. coz u may cause some handshake when you trigger it with your hand even when mounted on tripod

    the text on it is ugly if you ask me.

    now don't blame me for giving that comment coz if you put the text there it's gonna be part of the whole presentation.

    it's an okay effort. i don't really think it's very nice. the soft focus does not really work in this thing, IMHO. i suggest you look at some photography magazines and see how they carry out these kinda "product" or "product-like" shots. the recent issue of "professional photographer" if i'm not wrong should have these. just go to kino or borders to browse.

    it's blur throughout, there's no sharp point in this picture, and composition wise, i'd have prefered more tomatoes. depth of field is not enough, but i suspect you're using a normal digicam so it's not your fault.

    yup yup...me have used PS to sharpen it but this is the max i can do...i guess my hands did shake when i pressed the shutter to shoot...i seem to have this problem most of the time...perhaps cam is too light hence the easy movement? i dun have a tripod cos thinking of upgrading my cam liao......thanks for ur tips tho

    Personally, I think the number of tomatoes is enough. I kinda like the way you arrange it... soft focus is not that bad to me either. I would say its a good attempt but perhaps there is still room for improvement.

    i think composition is fine. blur...? my eyes already blur reading all the threads... so i think it's also fine. but yes, pls do lose the words. and make your signature and copyright thing smaller.
