Took this at a farmers market a little while back which led my teenage son to make fun of me, but oh well. I like this picture for some reason. Comments welcome.

I like the lines and geometric shapes but I might have stopped down a bit to get a little more DOF.

Crazy that you posted this yesterday as I had just spent the entire morning and early afternoon picking wild blueberries up in the Indian graveyard area on the BRP with my wife and our little mutt. The berries aren't as big as those in your image but they are pretty tasty.

I find the two blues, diagonal lines and repetition interesting. I agree that stopping done a bit would have enhanced it.

The lighting/processing DOES get my eye to where you want it to go, but once I'm there I'd have to agree with the others and say that your focal plane is too thin.

I'll also echo the others that the comp and colors are quite pleasing.

Thanks for the feedback. I have to agree that the DOF could have been a bit larger. I need to practice more close up work like this to get a better sense or DOF at close range.

You'd be surprised how thin it gets at those closer ranges!

I like the geometry of it and the shallow dof is nice. But I would have put the focus on the right side, not the center.
Nice work with a simple subject!

not sure I can manually correct it, but the blueberries look too purple
tightening the crop from both sides to highlight the two full boxes on the right strengthens in my opinion.

For really fine farmers' market photography, take a look at my friend's site:
g2photo.com
Among other things, some fine comps of boxes of berries on display

Scott,

Thanks for the suggestions and link to your friends site. I'll have to show it to my son! "See son, I'm not crazy, other people take pictures at farmers markets too!"
