Great shot but it looks a little lonely there. The blurred background is adding no value and I would crop it. Also some of the LHS does not add any value. a 3/2 crop to about 2cm above the head would improve the image in my view...john

@Bridget Cheers
@chappo1 Thanks for the crop suggestions. I was trying to contrast the detail in the foreground with blur in the bg, I guess I could have gone lower so the blue started sooner. Also I thought the image would have more impact with the red more or else on the 3rds intersection in which case if anything I need to take a bit more off the botton and rhs.

I missed this earlier. Lovely contrast in colour and texture, and between the ripe and unripe. The crop is a matter of taste - It tried it John's way and as you have it and like it both ways. Viv
