Another try with brighter front.

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.

Sometimes it is better to leave what you think as thoughts than actually writing them down.

personally, I think it is an excellent shot and it inspires me to try and emulate it.

Thank you for your observation. In my profession, I must deal daily with what may seem as harsh criticism. I believe my honest and unedited observations will benefit the original poster optimally rather than coddling him/ her. I apologize for any offense I have caused you.
