great composition. I love haw you chose to use blue in the background to contrast the orange of the peaches. using complamenterary colors like this helps to make the piece eye-catching and interesting to look at. One thing I think that you could do to emprove the sense of depth in this composition is move the peach in the bottom middle of the frame. positioning this peach slightly to the right would break the plane of the basket rim and add great depth to the composition.


p.s. I love this entire series of food with natural lighe. keep them coming.
