I think it's a nice start.

I wish the berry-color was more rich, prominently lit.  (The beautiful red color gets lost in shadow).

I wish there wasn't what appears to be evidence of a previous splash.

I think compositionally, it'd be better if the splash where higher.  (Drop the berry from a greater height perhaps).  It's more of a "kerplunk" not an energetic "splash!"

I wish the seam between the horizontal and vertical surface was perfect.  It's slightly uneven, almost looks like a welding bead.

I wish the hotspot on the back surface had a more gradual transition.

I think it'd be nice to have some level of rim-lighting to make the glass pop more from the muddy backdrop.

I wish overall, it was higher-key and slightly more vibrant.

I hope you find my observations valuable.
