Love your note.

But it was the bright, vivid red of your photo that drew me in.

Excellent job.

Those remind me of gooseberries Janice. Mmmm I sense a pie coming on! Great lighting and detail on the berries. That one blurry leaf on the top right is my only nit.

  • Great

Hello Janice,
This tiny currants looks like little tomatoes to me. very illustrative image. I think that a bit dark could be better, in spite of all nice job.
