A quick shot maybe, but with a very good result, Kesha ;o)

The pose of your model and especially the way she "approaches" the fruit (e.g. with her hand on her breast), give this image something "transcendental". As if this was not "just" a fruit and as if the model was not "just" a woman. To me, this scene evokes the idea of temptation, as it can be found in books like the Bible.

The rich but rather subdued colors perfectly fit with the dreamy atmosphere, enhanced by a lovely background bokeh. Your model also reaches out to the "right" fruit, i.e. the one with another color than the other fruits.

Maby I could have preferred this fruit to be a little sharper still. The same goes for your model's eyes. On my screen, the hand resting on her breast is the sharpest element. It also works (maybe you even wanted it like that), but nuances the perception of your image. I personally would have tried to focus on the "action": the eye-contact between the model and the fruit. A detail though, that does not alter the general quality of your photo.

TFS & kind regards,

Hi Kesha,

I like the dreamy effect you captured here. The soft look is very appealing and the pose adds a touch of wonderment, which is something already mentioned by Erik. Maybe having her face/eyes would have been better, but I like the soft look of her hair.

Best regards,
