    G'day CARLA!

A delightfully refreshing image, enough to make me drool in anticipation of the fruity experience to come.

I feel you may have created a new genre of photography as well - Still Life with Movement. (???)

I would like to have seen the container sitting on the surface not the bottom of frame, so it is "anchored". This would also prevent the lower part of the base being cut off should someone wish to mount, matt and frame a print. (Justathort!)

Colours and lusciously summery and contrast well with each other and the splash has been well caught.

They were delicious, Dennis. My mom and I enjoyed one or two soon after this shot.

This glass container of fruit wasn't setting directly on a table. But, was on top of another smaller glass cylinder and both were placed in the center of a small childs inflatable swimming pool. I shot this on top of my kitchen table and containing the water was a necessity. :) That is why you may see the blue color reflected in the larger water drops (the pools color). With Photoshop all things are possible. I will photograph my kitchen table and try to combine them as you've discribed. Good idea and thanks for the suggestion and your compliments.

Thank you, Arthur and Martha. It is fun to play in photoshop!

Thanks UB! Having my mom help made all the difference and certainly helped my timing. :)

Thank you Nancie. I was going for something different and I'm liking your 'interesting' comment.

Thank you, Robert.
I appreciate that you shared the filter with me, gave me the link to the free texture/bg and inspired me with your amazing art images.

Thank you, all very much.

I've been busy with my parents; Dad's having a few cardio tests at the heart hospital and I just say the notification this image was awarded a 2nd Place. This was like a double win; Dad's okay and a win here on BP!

Thank you everyone. I'll catch up on my posting soon. Congrats to all the winners and finalists.
