Like it and I enjoyed reading the last 2 comments , well done vote
Vector, coming from you...good input. With 2.8 and my 50mm, I was getting too much blur. I wanted detail on as much of berry as possible. I literally had almost zero light except for a small table lamp far away and at ISO 640, the noise was very very minimal. I tried 3 berries, slices, etc and went with this to keep it simple. Thanks again. I love your work so I know you've got a keen eye for input and shot parameters. Thank you and thank all who've commented.
Classical, strawberries and cherries are best representatives for red fruits. You could have gone for f/2.8 for smaller shutter speed and more detail on the texture (also ISO-200). I would have chosen a different background color because black gives you a lot of noise at higher ISO values. An ideea for the composition could be to place a slice of the strawberry next to the whole one to expose also the inner texture. Overall great shot... voted

Nicely done, just got done slicing up a bunch of my favorite fruit pictured above. Like the reflection. Back at the end of the week.
Suz...just a reading light (pointing away from my lunch), a high ISO, camera on tripod and a long shutter speed - OH...and a trip to the grocery store to find the perfect berry (had to pay dearly).
Well.......with this being the first entry, I'm ready to pack up my camera and sell it to the highest bidder. This is outrageously fantastic!
