Eric, this is a really fantastic work. You are right, the cherries do pop right out at you! I love the background that has a smoky quality to it. Great pick for your Best of 10! I sincerely wish you a great 2011, 12, 13. But most of all each day - one at a time!
The shot does almost look three-dimensional! It was a great choice for your best/favorite photo. I've enjoyed getting to know you through your photography this year, Eric - and I hope 2011 will be a happy and healthy one for all of us!
