Hello Christodoulos,
It is so beautifully exposed one can touch it! like three dimensional effect.
superb colour and sharpness.
nice BG.
very well done MF.
best wishes,

Incredible three-dimensional view of this lovely bunch of fruits, Chris.
In images like this, a camera surpasses the sharpest human vision, leave alone the weak eyes of an old man like me.
Hats off to you once again, my friend!
